On Saturday 12th of August we are going to be holding our great big SNUG Sponsored fancy dress parade! We invite you to grab all your friends and family, get dressed up and come along and join in some wholesome fun, all for a great cause! Everyone is invited! The big aim of the day is to raise as much money as possible for SNUG so we can ensure families who have sick and preterm babies in Devon are provided with the support and resources they need to help to see them through them through difficult times.

Every child will receive a certificate for entering the parade, and prizes will be given to the BEST DRESSED BABY, BEST DRESSED CHILD and the BEST DRESS FAMILY. One lucky entrant will also walk away with a family break in a beachside apartment in St Ives! Check it out here
