The (Socially Distanced) Bulging Sack

Fed up of lockdown – the Santa’s, helped by our volunteers,  opened up The Bulging Sack on Burghfield Recreation Ground for summer week-ends allowing local residents to enjoy a drink in the park with their friends and family and in the process help raise some much-needed funds for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance. All in a safe socially-distanced way.

1,500 local residents enjoyed:
