RESIDENTS at Plaxton Court in Scarborough were able to find out more about the Joseph Rowntree Foundation during a special event.

Julia Unwin, chief executive of the both the foundation and the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust, was invited to talk about her role.

This was the first in a new series of “An Audience with...” events organised by Plaxton Court’s general manager Judith Hannah. The events aim to raise money for charity and provide residents with a chance to hear from a range of speakers on very different topics, with the opportunity for audience members to ask questions.

Julia joined the residents for tea and scones afterwards and all proceeds raised will be donated to Refuge.
