Children and parents participated in creative activities like origami, henna tattoos, sports challenges,natural plays and willow weaving in the sunshine during the event.
Traditional hog roast, refreshments, ice cream, live music and a magician were a few of the highlights enjoyed by children and adults alike.
By the end of the event AGC Chemicals had raised £350 from the raffle and donations.
An additional £77 was raised on the tombola provided by Streetlife, a youth work charity with the aim of assisting vulnerable young people in the Blackpool area.
AGC Chemicals donated the prizes; tickets for corporate hospitality at a Fleetwood Town Football match and a football shirt signed by the team.
