We’re back!

The fun day will take place at the Shropshire Conference Centre (SECC) in the grounds of our Royal Shrewsbury Hospital (RSH) on Saturday 6 July.

It follows a hugely successful event held last year to mark the 70th birthday of the NHS, which raised more than £6,000 for SaTH Charity, SaTH’s Living Well with Dementia appeal and the Trust’s Swan Fund for end of life care.

Attractions confirmed for this year’s event include:

  • Live music from acts including the Ronaldos

  • A disco bubble

  • Go karting

  • Nerf gun arena

  • Exotic zoo

  • 202 Field Hospital

Live music will be provided by some of Shropshire’s most popular acts including Wem Taiko Drums, Geoff Rogers, Jay Harris, Top Bananas and The Ronaldos.

Refreshments will be available thanks to the popular Rapid Relief Team barbecue, Little Box of Goodness, Planet Doughnut and Caffe Bistro.

A host of emergency services will also be supporting the day, with attendance from West Midlands Ambulance Service, Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service, West Mercia Police, St John Ambulance and Shropshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire Blood Bikes.

Julia Clarke, Director of Corporate Governance at SaTH and Chair of the fun day organising committee, said: “We are really looking to what promises to be another great day.

“Last year’s event was an incredible success, but we have also looked at the overall event to make some improvements this year, including a new staging area for our live music, which is at the heart of the food court, so people can grab a bite to eat or a drink and enjoy some great music.

“We are really grateful to all of the stalls and attractions who have signed up to this year’s event, as well as all the other organisations which have contributed to the fun day and the fun run.”
