Michael Buerk visits CowParade’s Glorious Guildford
Journalist and former newsreader Michael Buerk paid a visit to Guildford Castle recently to meet Glorious Guildford, the CowParade cow sponsored by local PR and marketing firm Property House Marketing in aid of Challengers.
As one of its patrons, Michael is a great supporter of Challengers, an independent children’s charity which delivers inclusive play and leisure for disabled children and young people across Surrey, Hampshire and surrounding areas.
In 2015, Challengers dedicated 132,235 hours to 1,400 disabled children and young people. These services are delivered at Challengers’ Guildford and Farnham Centres as well as schemes based at schools and community youth centres all through the year.
Michael Buerk said: “I am very proud to be able to lend my support to this fantastic charity. The difference Challengers makes throughout Surrey is hugely important and I always enjoy meeting the children and parents who benefit from these services.”
Property House Marketing is also running a selfie competition for visitors to Glorious Guildford. The person who takes the best photo with the cow will win a meal for two at CAU Guildford, up to the value of £100. Entrants need to upload their selfies to Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn using #GloriousGuildford, before the deadline of 31st July.
Glorious Guildford will remain at the Guildford Castle Grounds until the end of August when the cows will be gathered together for their final public appearance at the Surrey Hills Food, Drink & Music Festival at Coverwood Farm on 3rd September, after which they will go to auction.
