Out and about this Summer

Another busy summer for us –

We attended the Great Ayton Summer Fete In June.

We invited people to find a luxury hamper, donated by Great Ayton Coop, on our mystery map and also sold ‘mix-up sweet bags’ – which were as popular as ever!

We made £74 profit which goes straight into the charity funds.

 

We also attended the Classic Car Show in June in Stokesley.

This time we had a very varied tombola – the weather was wet to start but improved as the day went on.

Happily we made £374.80 on the day! Which was rounded up to £450 by Rotary – many thanks for their brilliant support.

 

Whilst we need to fundraise, this is also an ideal opportunity for us to let people know about the services we can provide and also an opportunity to recruit more volunteers – who are always welcome!
