Bumper crowds at Scottish fun day !

WOW!

What a fun day!

Everyone who attended had a splendid time at M & D’s Scotland last Saturday.

We cannot thank everyone enough for all the hard work in making the day such a success.

This year, the Mears Foundation were able to raise a fantastic £530.10 at the Fun day to support the charity’s work.

A big thank you to everyone for their generous donations and who attend the Mears Foundation marquee.

See you next year for another best day out!

Only 4 days to go!

The countdown is well and truly on for the return to the M&D's Theme Park on Saturday 1st September for the Mears Fun day Scotland. 10am – 6pm (exclusive use for Mears until 12 noon).
*Gates open 9am.

A guaranteed great day out for families and friends. There really is something to do for everyone, with an abundance of exciting activities on offer.

Attendees have a lot to look forward to with the 2018 fun day promising to be bigger and better!
Ah the weather! It is one of our favourite topics of conversation after all. The forecast at the moment is 17° with scattered showers

Remember you’ll be outside a lot, so make sure you’ve dressed sensibly.

We can’t wait to see you at the Mears Foundation marquee.

See you on Saturday!

British Transplant Games MF Donation

The games are a chance for anyone across the country who has had a transplant of any kind , ages from as young as 2 up to sometimes 80+ to take part in various sporting activities from the more sedentary ones like ten pin bowling and darts to track and field events and swimming. The whole ethos of the games is for transplant recipients to show their thanks to their donors and donor families.

The event is open for all abilities and skill levels and in fact the person coming last is always the person who gets the most cheers! Team Portsmouth came back with 7 golds, 3 silvers and a 2 bronzes. It was as always a very inspiring and emotional event and feels like one big extended family. We even became part of the Guinness book of records with having the most transplant recipients in one room (724)!


The team were very grateful for the Mears Foundation for their donation of £250 which went towards new shorts and tracksuit bottoms for our team.
