Carnival 2016 was always going to be a hard act to follow – but by following and building upon the model, we were able to donate more than ever to our supported organisations.
The proceeds from the 2017 Carnival and associated events (Fun Day, CM5K run, etc.) enabled us to donate £6,575 to our supported organisations, with the principal donations going to the Green Island Holiday Trust and Corfe Mullen Youth Trust. Smaller donations went to the Guides, Scouts, Air Cadets, South Coast Helicopter Club, Wessex 4x4 Response, and the Ukulele Band.
We were delighted to welcome "Scotty Dog" Mitchell to open the Carnival, and he clearly entered into the fun spirit of the day - even allowing the Tigers Children's Motorcycle Display Team to ride over him! (It's a relief that didn't go wrong)!
