Family fun day raises money for defibrillator for Cookham Dean

Grace Witherden


A family fun day at the Jolly Farmer saw hundreds raised towards a defibrillator for Cookham Dean on Saturday.

The event, at the pub in Church Road,  featured family games and a pig roast and was organised by The Kaffirs, who also organise the Boxing Day Games and the Gravity Grand Prix.

More than 300 people turned up for the event.

Paul Webb, chairman of The Kaffirs said: "It was a great day, lots of people in the community came down and enjoyed the hog roast.

"We didn't do quite as well as last year because of the weather but it was a really positive day.

"Each year we pick a different project and this year we want to raise money for a defibrilator which we hope to have installed on the wall of Cookham Dean Village Hall for people to make use of by the end of the year."

The Kaffirs' next big event will be the Gravity Grand Prix on Sunday, September 11.
