Imperial Wharf, the award-winning riverside development, hosted a successful Family Fun Day earlier this month, providing the perfect setting for parents to entertain their children at the beginning of the summer holidays.
Gambado, the indoor children's adventure centre teamed up with childcare and early education centre, Bright Horizons, and developer St George to host the Family Fun Day at Imperial Wharf, Fulham SW6.
Michael Meanley, Managing Director of St George Central London commented, "We are delighted the Imperial Wharf Family Fun Day proved to be such an enjoyable experience for all the family. We are proud to provide an exceptional and free event, in association with Gambado and Bright Horizons, for the community at Imperial Wharf, whilst raising valuable funds for the children's charity Rainbow Trust. The stunning riverside location, with its range of shops, bars and restaurants and leisure facilities, defines Imperial Wharf as one of London's finest riverside destinations and provided the perfect backdrop to the event."
The Imperial Wharf Family Day was held in association with the children's charity Rainbow Trust raising over £450 to provide practical and emotional support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.
Nicola O'Donnell, Corporate Partnership Manager at Rainbow Trust said: "We were extremely pleased with the response received from visitors to the Family Day at the Imperial Wharf. We would like to thank St George, Gambado and Bright Horizons for giving us the opportunity to raise vital funds and for supporting the day."
Rick Wates, Sales and Marketing Director at Gambado commented, "The Family Day was a huge success for Gambado and a reflection on the quality and attraction that Imperial Wharf offers families. Our customers and team had a day to remember and raising money for the Rainbow Trust offered us a chance to support a great children's charity and give something back to our local community"
