We are a group of local residents that create fun events for the residents of Burghfield and the surrounding area to raise money for local charities.
It all started with Santa Cruise 15 years ago when a group of mates went out for a few drinks after making and wrapping many presents. We wore our red suits and raised a little money for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance.
We did this again and again many times and somewhere along the way we realised that charity fundraising is not just for Christmas but Easter too. The Bunny Hop was born, closely followed by Burghfest which satisfied our need for good music, good company & good local beer.
Last year, we raised a truly astonishing £41,000 for a range of great local causes including, of course, the amazing Thames Valley Air Ambulance.
Owing to the Coronavirus our major events have been canceled this year but we did open the Socially Distanced Bulging Sack on Friday and Saturday evenings in the summer and ran a Christmas beer takeaway service.
Thanks for all your support.
