The Big Blast – A Big Thank You!

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came out to support The Big Blast 2023 on Saturday.

It proved to be a challenging evening once the weather took an unexpected turn for the worse and we thank everyone for their patience, understanding and good care as conditions underfoot became more difficult.

However there was plenty of Wellington spirit on show with families having a great time despite the driving rain and that was great to see. Well done everybody!

We were of course really disappointed that we had to close the disabled car park but some vehicles were beginning to struggle in the entrance and we really had no option. We have reached out to all those who were affected by email.

As always, this event raises funds for Wellington Cricket Club, a community sports club and it is crucial to keeping us going from one season to the next. The event is organised entirely by our members and volunteers and we would like to give them an extra special thank you for their wonderful efforts last night.

The Big Blast also helps to support local good causes, such as Telford Crisis Support, our charity partner for this year’s event. Donations of £870 were raised from the generosity of our ticketholders this time around.

Thanks again to everyone who came out – and we hope you have now dried off!
