Fathers Day overshadowed by EU vote

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Jun 02, 2016 - For many dads this year, Fathers Day on Sunday 19 June risks being overshadowed by the EU vote just four days later, according to a new survey.

Of the two dates, it finds the EU vote rated more important than Fathers Day by a three-to-one majority. Worrying for democracy and dads in similar measure, about one-in-five people say both occasions are unimportant.

About Fathers Days itself, one-in-three people admit finding it quite or very difficult to find a suitable gift. Among respondents saying very difficult, women outnumber men three-to-one.

The survey was conducted for Gloucestershire farmer Kirsty Westaway, who runs the gift website yourperfectnightin.co.uk. To help grateful offspring of all ages say thank you to dedicated dads, she has teamed up with award-winning Lancashire brewer Patsy Slevin.

They have created gift hampers matching up prime sirloin or ribeye steaks with bottled pale and golden real ales from Prospect Brewery. A four-jar set of artisan mustards can be added to the Fathers Day package. As standard, it contains cooking instructions and a gift card. Delivery is free to the deserving dad’s home address.

Despite the survey’s implications for Fathers Day, farmer Kirsty and brewer Patsy are eager to see the findings in perspective. “Clearly, the EU vote is critical to the country’s long term future, whichever way it goes,” says Kirsty. “Hopefully, the survey gives us the opportunity to encourage people to take a full part in both occasions.”


The survey was conducted 26-30 May 2016.
