Thank you Dorchester Festival!

Style Acre were the chosen charity for the 2019 Dorchester Festival and what a success it was!

After months of hard work, planning and preparation by the festival organisers and Anita Powell, Style Acre’s Community & Events Fundraiser, the festival kicked off with a bang at the Big Bash followed by the event opening and sponsored abseils. The next two weeks were jam-packed with fun frolics, including a family dog show, food and gift fair, folk night, jazz supper, Music for Autism, fun run, duck race and much, much more.

It was fantastic to see so many people Style Acre supports involved with the event, whether it was selling raffle tickets, taking part in the scarecrow trail or judging the dog show. Everyone involved had a fantastic time and we have to say a big thank you to everyone for the outstanding support. Thank you to all those staff, volunteers and people we support who gave up their time to make cakes, promote Style Acre at the festival, collect donations, set up at events, and everything else.

The hard work was particularly worth it for raising the profile of Style Acre in the local community, and we will continue to work with everyone in Dorchester in the future. Thank you to the Dorchester community, Dorchester Festival team, particularly Nick and Steph Forman, who helped us to raise over £20,000 for Style Acre!
