A charity has appealed to businesses to help support an exciting upcoming event in Great Yarmouth.

The Anchorage Trust, which - along with Batten Disease Family Association - has organised a jam-packed family fun day next month, has reached out to businesses to sponsor the event.

Held at Yarmouth Racecourse on July 22, the fun day will see a myriad of activities for the family, as well as an appearance from Titan the Robot.

Now, the Yarmouth-based charity, which works to create opportunities for young people in the borough, is hoping businesses will help ensure the event is as successful as possible.

James Sinclair, Trust fundraising manager said: “The event is always great fun - last year we had around 3,000 people come along and we’re hoping to top that this year. Businesses getting involved will help us to raise as much money as possible to help two great causes.”
