Diggerland supports KM Treasure Chest

Diggerland adventure park is supporting the KM Treasure Chest fundraising scheme for charities in Kent.

Sherene Garvin-Mack and Andy Ballantyne of Diggerland join Wowzer the KM Walk to School mascot to celebrate the attraction supporting KM Treasure Chest. Watched by Duggy and Dotty the Diggerland mascots.

The Strood based attraction, which gives kids and grown-ups the chance to ride and drive real full size construction machinery, has teamed up with the KM Charity Team on its popular fundraising initiative.

Treasure Chest supplies raffle and auction prizes to PTAs, charities and voluntary groups.

Diggerland UK’s marketing manager Sherene Garvin-Mack said:

“We are delighted to be in partnership with the KM Charity Team. There are so many charities and good causes that all work exceptionally hard to benefit the community. We will be donating a number of family theme park tickets throughout the year.”

Simon Dolby of the KM Charity Team said:

“It’s wonderful that Diggerland are so committed to helping good causes in Kent. Treasure Chest helps charities to generate much needed funds to continue their fantastic work.”

Soap Star Has Muddy Good Fun

Last week Diggerland Kent played host to former Emmerdale star Roxanne Pallett, who was launching the new 888casino’s Millionaire Genie game. She was on a date with Troy Stapleton, whose wish was granted by 888.com and ourselves to go digger racing with the actress-turned-model.

Andy Ballantyne, Managing Director of Diggerland, called it “the best photo shoot we’ve ever done”, and even managed to get a little signed picture, which is now carefully stored under lock and key!

Miss Pallett shot to fame as Jo Sugden in the ITV soap Emmerdale, but she only clinched the job by lying on her CV about being a whizz on a motorbike. The show’s bosses wrote the bike into her character’s story and only found out on the first day of filming that she barely knew how to sit on one and had fibbed about her licence. So once she got behind the wheel of our Dumper Trucks we were all on high alert!

But despite falling out of a scoop while trying to bat away a wasp, screaming her lungs out as she crashed a JCB up a hill and almost falling out the window of a 9 tonne JCB as it turned on one side, it was a fun-filled day for all!

Diggerland is the UK’s ultimate adventure park where people of all ages and abilities can ride and drive real full-size diggers. With over 18 different attractions including giant diggers, tractors, Go-Karts, Dumper Trucks, the Skyshuttle, and our world famous Spindizzy, Diggerland promises a great day out for the whole family!
