Event: Hull Armed Forces Day
Location: Hull City Centre

Well it was a good start to the day when we arrived at 7.55am and there was no-one in sight. We started to wonder if we had got the date wrong or the event had been cancelled due to the weather!!! Anyway, we finally managed to get onto the gardens (we kind of took over but that's nothing new) and set up the stall without any rain.

The day started slowly but after the march finished at around 11am we started to see people "trickle" through to the gardens. The weather then started to turn and we had a couple of big downpours which stopped visitors to the stall. We did have some visitors, members and their families, one of the families hadn't been to respite so will hopefully be attending next year. The "trying on kit" also went down very well with kids (young and old) and thanks to the cadets from QPD for keeping us entertained.

We managed to sell some products, which raised 75.00 for the charity, but we were unable to collect through the buckets and tubs as per the council instructions. Luckily the parking was free and thanks to Christine and John for giving their time as volunteers to help.
