The annual Mayfest in Callington was as popular as ever with good weather, some fantastic local musicians and plenty of entertainment for the thousands of people attending to enjoy. Our team from the local office were also attending having spent many hours baking some delicious cupcakes that were being sold to raise money for our charity of the year, The Exeter Deaf Academy.
The events started at midday with a precession of giants that were made by the local schools, churches and Rotary Club, which looked amazing. There were a range of musical talents playing through the afternoon including The Farrell Family and a Samba band, which were complimented by the Plymouth Maids dancing. The traditional Maypole dancing took place with Wreckers Border Morris dancers and of course the Town Criers competition, with award being presented to both adults and children by our staff in the Callington office.
The community spirit was clear for all to see and as result, the local team managed to raise £123.47 for the Exeter Deaf Academy, which was a fantastic achievement. Angela Hundson commented “It was a super day and I think everyone that came along enjoyed it but we are delighted to have raised the amount of money today for our charity and well worth spending all that time in the kitchen making them. We can’t wait until next year now!”
