Cheshire Funeral Services, part of the Co-operative Funeralcare, donated the tent to the St Ann’s Girl Guides of Orford after they were invited to popular Cheshire-based music festival, fabfest.
The group’s existing tent wouldn’t have been durable enough to withstand the event, so funeral arranger Christine Bracken, mother of girl guide Caitlin, approached her manager to see if the home could help.
Christine helped during a trial run of erecting the tent, which was selected by Guide leader Andrea Colville after thorough research.
Unfortunately severe flooding put paid to any use of the tent at fabfest, though the tent is now ready and waiting for camping events for the foreseeable future.
