Always in our hearts
Farther’s Day at Kemnal park
19th June 2016
In order to remember all the fathers who have gone before us Kemnal Park had organised a balloon release on the occasion of Father’s Day. Families gathered on the greens of the gallantry area in front of the chapel building. Each family member was given a balloon along with a message tag to attach notes in loving memory of their father, grandfather, father-in-law. At 11am approximately 200 balloons we released in loving memory of the fathers. The event was a very emotional one and was well received by the local community.
A team of four Kemnal Park members had participated on a London-Brighton bike ride to raise money for British Heart Foundation on the same day and raised a total of £1282. The team dedicated their efforts and charity to the fathers who were lost to heart diseases
