Burwash hosts many charitable events throughout the year. These range from the incredibly popular Apple Days, to individual shops raising money for a particular charity. We’ve only mentioned the major events on this page, but rest assured there’s always something going on, from Bramble Rambles to Fashion Shows.

APPLE DAY

On Saturday October 8th 2016, we held our annual Apple Day here at Burwash Manor.

We're absolutely thrilled to announce that we raised over £5,200 for The Sick Children's Trust!

We would like to thank everybody who took part and made the day a huge success. Thank you to everyone who attended despite the drizzle, and helped us to raise so much money for a charity close to our hearts.

The Sick Children's Trust works to provide free high-quality accommodation for families with children in hospital. They believe keeping a family together significantly improves the recovery of seriously ill children.

If you are interested in having a stall at the 2017 Apple Day, please contact us on info@burwashmanor.com

EAST ANGLIAN ROAD RUN

On Sunday July 13th 2014, a whole array of vintage vehicles and classic cars took part in the annual East Anglian Road Run in aid of Magpas – the emergency medical charity.

The vehicles assembled at Burwash Manor before setting off at 9.30am to go on a circular route encompassing many Cambridgeshire villages – the parade visited Comberton, Hardwick, Bourn, Kingston, Eversden, Orwell, Barrington, Haslingfield and Grantchester. Spectators had a chance to get a good look at the vehicles before waving them off and then enjoying all the usual delights of Burwash - plus a fairground, Artists’ Marquee and ice cream stalls – a very welcome addition due to the very sunny day!

The vintage procession of trucks, tractors, motorbikes, cars and more finally finished back at Burwash Manor at around 3.30pm, greeted by many excited visitors keen to learn more about the fabulous vehicles (and to find out who won the medals for the best vehicle in show!).

East Anglian Road Run Committee member Vanda Parcell said, “We would like to thank the incredible team of volunteers involved, we couldn’t have done this without them”.

Michael Radford, who owns Burwash Manor, explained “We have two very good reasons for hosting the East Anglian Road Run at Burwash (apart from the fact that it is simply a delightful event). Firstly I have had a lifelong fascination with classic vehicles of all sorts (probably inherited from my father). Secondly, and more importantly, some 25 years ago, Magpas saved my life; as they have innumerable others before and since.”

This event raised over £800 for MAGPAS.

BURWASH MANOR’S SIXTH CHARITY FUNDRAISING BALL

On July 6th, Burwash Manor’s Secret Garden Marquee played host to their sixth annual Charity Fundraising Ball. Guests dined on fabulous canapés and a formal three course meal cooked by Burwash Larder’s chef Paola Romano, and then danced the night away to the Roadrunners.

Through ticket sales, a raffle and an auction on the night, over £6,000 was raised for the Teenage Cancer Trust and Barton Parish Council's project for creating a safe dropping off point for children attending Barton Primary School.

ARTISTS' MARQUEE PREVIEW EVENING

On July 5th, all the participating artists from this years' exhibition gathered together to host a preview evening in aid of Tom's Trust. Each artist generously donated a piece of work so that the charity could benefit from a 'posh raffle' - meaning many lucky winners walked away with truly fabulous prizes! Guests enjoyed jazz on the lawn, Pimms, cakes and, incredibly, brilliant sunshine!

They raised over £500 for Tom's Trust with an event that kick-started the fabulous four-weekend exhibition (now affiliated to Cambridge Open Studios).

EASTER EGG HUNT

Burwash Manor celebrated Easter in style on March 30th with a fabulous Easter egg hunt around our farm site. From looking for bikes up trees, to searching for the name of a donkey, hundreds of children braved the weather (we had snow, rain and hail ... but lots of sunshine and fun too!) to let off a bit of steam and run around making space for all those Easter eggs ... small visitors also enjoyed games, a funfair, bouncy castle and face painting, whilst for those children (or, let's be honest, those parents!) who got a little bit tired due to all the treasure hunting, there were donkey rides and a miniature steam train followed by a welcome stop at the Hog Roast stand. There was even a chance to climb all over some very different tractors - from the smallest, British, vintage model to the swankiest, largest, American beast you've ever seen! We couldn't have done it without a superb effort from our own volunteers, members of Tom's Trust and also help from Domino's Printing (Bar Hill) and Ridgeons, our very kind sponsors.

All proceeds from the event were donated to Tom's Trust, a local charity providing funding to help provide support to children suffering from brain tumours and we were delighted to be able to present them with £1196.25.
