Charter Walk Kitchen Living are proud to be involved in Haslemere Hares 2018. We are sponsoring “Million Hare” in this years successor to Haslemere Hogs, the highly successful Community Arts project that took place in the summer of 2017.
Haslemere Hares 2018
Haslemere Hares 2018 is a community project which was masterminded by former town mayor Brian Howard, whose Haslemere Hogs were such a hit. Although not specifically intended as a ‘Fundraising excercise’, more than £35,000 was raised for a variety of Local and National good causes. Hopes are high that this new town charity project could raise even more this year.
The Haslemere Hare project has used local Artists and Schools to decorate more than 100 fibreglass Hares that will be displayed throughout the area from May till September 2018. Following the display period – The HARE Parade – the Hares will be sold off with the proceeds going to a variety of Charities.
Charter Walk Sponsors Million Hare
Charter Walk Kitchen Living are proud to be sponsoring one of the Haslemere Hares – Million Hare. The beautifully decorated Hare has pride of place in our bespoke luxury kitchen showroom in our Haslemere branch. Charter Walk are sponsoring Cancer Research UK.
Million Hare was decorated by Sam Richardson, a local Haslemere resident who has had a career in fashion design. Having travelled far and wide, and with a passion for all things fashion, she was delighted to add her majic touch to Million Hare.
The Tale of the Million Hare
According to the Haslemere Hares website, the following is the story of the Charter Walk sponsored Million Hare:
Legend has it that when the east winds blow across the little town where 3 counties meet, a MillionHARE can be spotted with his trusted sprite Loppie.
If you’re lucky enough to catch a glympse, good fortune may come your way – a dash of good health, a spark of inspiration, a smile from another fellow. or a ‘hop’ in your step !
