A Norfolk adventure park hosted Grant Thornton staff, their friends and family for a special picnic.
The accountancy firm hosted its Purple Picnic, in aid of Norfolk children’s bereavement charity Nelson’s Journey, at Bewilderwood near Hoveton.
Some 200 people made their way to the woodland for the event, which included face painting, arts and crafts and storytelling as well as a mobile treasure hunt, organised by Norwich-based Thyngs, which also provided a cashless solution for guests to make donations. In total the event raised £1,000 for Nelson’s Journey.
This year’s Purple Picnic fundraising campaign saw more than 70 events held by businesses, schools and individuals around Norfolk.
Tim Hansell, head of advisory at Grant Thornton’s Norwich office, said: “Purple Picnic is a fantastic initiative and we were proud to host what we believe was the biggest – and certainly one of the most unusual – picnics this year.”
