CHARITY MATTERS: It's child's play
5:00pm Tuesday 9th October 2012 in News
CHILDREN were let loose in a car showroom with paintball guns, chocolate and modelling clay on Saturday, all in the name of a good cause.
The Chevrolet garage in Bicester welcomed more than 50 people to its mad hatter’s tea party in aid of military charity SSAFA.
Fern Spengler from Bicester took her daughter Ruby, age two, pictured, and ran a stall making “angry birds” fridge magnets with her company Jumping Clay.
Ms Spengler, 25, said: “We just wanted to have a lot of fun, the kids all seemed to really enjoy themselves.”
Ruby enjoyed decorating the side of a van donated by Hughes’s scrap yard, indulging in the chocolate fountain and then dancing in the disco.
The party raised more than £140 for SSAFA which aids servicemen in times of need.
