Gogglebox’s Siddiqui family to open League of Friends’ Summer Fayre 2017

League of Friends Summer Fayre 2017

The League of Friends, a charitable organisation that supports the work of Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, will host their annual summer fayre on Saturday 8 July from 1pm – 5pm at Kingsway Hospital in Derby (DE22 3LZ).

Visitors to the fayre will be able to enjoy some fascinating events and attractions including live entertainment, 0-12 years children’s fancy dress competition, children's magic show, Hanson’s £1 antique valuation, a stunt bike show, dance performances, bouncy castle, games and stalls.

All profits raised from the summer fayre will be reinvested back into patient care provided by Derbyshire Healthcare.

Special guests: the Siddiquis

Gogglebox’s Siddiqui family - Sid, and sons Umar and Baasit - will make a guest appearance to open the event. There may even be a sofa ready and waiting for them, in case they want to sit down and comment on all the goings on!

For Sid Siddiqui, the fayre will be something of a homecoming as he was formerly employed at the Kingsway Hospital.

Sid Siddiqui says: “The boys and I are really looking forward to coming to the summer fayre – it should be a great day, and not just because we’re going to be there! Seriously, though, it’s going to be extra special for me as I used to work at Kingsway Hospital, so this will be like a trip down memory lane. I’m excited about meeting old friends and colleagues, and about being part of an event that is going to raise money for a really good cause.”

Children's fancy dress competition

The children's fancy dress competition will take place at 3pm. There will be two age categories: 0 to 5 and 6 to 12. The winners in both categories will receive vouchers to spend at Smyth's Toys. Best of all, it's free to enter. So bring the kids in their best costumes!

Getting to the fayre

The entrance to the Kingsway Hospital site is at the Kingsway Retail Park car park - the hospital site is down past the Manor Kingsway housing development. The best postcode for satnavs is DE22 3NH.

Entry to the Kingsway Hospital summer fayre and parking, as always, are FREE and everyone is invited to attend – so why not bring your family and friends along to join in the fun and show your support to our dedicated group of League of Friends?
