Party on the field raises more than £5,000 for local charities
A fundraising event saw more than 400 people party in a field to raise money for Scunthorpe General Hospital and three other charities.
This was the third event that Lee and Emma Clay have organised at Misterton’s White House Farm campsite.
They stage the annual party to raise money for the hospital’s official charity The Health Tree Foundation (HTF). The money is earmarked for the neonatal intensive care unit, as their son Alfie was cared for there after he was delivered by emergency caesarean section at 28 weeks in 2016.
The party raised more than £5,800 this year with £2,285.00 going to HTF with the other monies split between three other charities.
Scrubs the Bear, the HTF official charity mascot, attended the event and posed for photos with people.
Lee and Emma Clay said: “We would like to thank everybody who helped make the day a success especially Lee’s parents Phil and Chris Clay, and to the companies who kindly donated their time and equipment for the event.
“We are over the moon that we are to hold this event and raise money for so many wonderful charities.”
HTF community champion Hayley Thompson said: “Scrubs and I had a great time at the party. We got to meet so many people from across the country who turned out for the annual event.
“We are really grateful to Emma and Lee who have raised a massive £5,972.00 from their Part on the Field event for NICU over the last three years.”
