The Different Types of Dads — Happy Father's Day, Hopeland Dads! – Hope 103.2

The Different Types of Dads — Happy Father’s Day, Hopeland Dads!

To celebrate our Hopeland dads this Father’s Day, we want to know which fun-loving label you would use for your dad – if you had to sum him up in one?

We have prizes to give away, which could be perfect to palm off to your dad as a present on Sunday 6 September (we won’t tell ?… although, he may clue in if he sees the photo you’ve entered), as well as encouraging articles, interviews and videos if you are a dad yourself.

Whether you will be present with your dad on Sunday 6 September or apart, we would love you to tell us about your dad or the person in your life who has been a father to you:
