Eastbourne Sunshine Carnival 2022

WayfinderWoman participated in the Eastbourne Carnival on Saturday 4th June 2022

What a fantastic experience being part of the procession at the Eastbourne Carnival, the theme this year was the Platinum Jubilee. There were with thousands of people lining the route, sitting on the pavement outside the bars and hotels.  Some in Royal regalia, others waving flags, waving hands taking photographs / videos, filling our charity buckets with their hard earnt coffers with large smiles on a beautiful sunny day.

Our volunteers were all dressed in a royal theme, looking resplendent. The star of our show was Queen Victoria being pushed in her Throne, created by volunteers in the hub.  Our other stars were Otis the Cockerpoo, who the children along the route adored.  Baby Betsy, dressed as a princess in her throne and our gorgeous 8-year-old Snow White.

It was wonderful to celebrate being part of the Queens Jubilee, sharing our day with other fantastic charities, entertainers, being by the sea and to be able to again celebrate with people en-masse.

Thank you to Mina O-Brien from Ditzy media for organising such a great show.
