First Days Pumpkin Trail


First Days is a Wokingham-based charity working and campaigning to end child poverty. First Days
reduces the long term effect of poverty on children by equipping them with the essential items
they need for their early years and at school. They believe children should be safe in their home and
out and about, be confident in school and have fun - so the charity helps to facilitate that.

In recent months demand for services offered by First Days has been increasing exponentially, due to the cost of living crisis bringing a higher number of people into financial hardship.

This October half-term, the charity is organising a fundraising Pumpkin Trail at California Country Park in
Finchampstead. Simply purchase a map for £3 from Jackson's Café, follow the 2km trail around the
lake and through the woodland, and see if you can find all the pumpkin posters which each display a
letter. (The trail is suitable for pushchairs.)

Each poster includes a fantastic joke to hopefully put a smile on your face, but can you find all the
letters that spell out a secret word/s?

Write your answer on the bottom of the map and head back to Jackson's Café and claim your
chocolate treat (one treat per map purchased).

All money raised goes towards supporting those local children and their families who are living with a
low income or are experiencing financial hardship.

The charity wishes to thank Starfish Accounting and Clifton Ingram Solicitors for sponsoring the handmade treats supplied by Wargrave based Rosie's Chocolate Factory.
