A Family fun day, barbecue and music fundraiser at the Crown Tavern pub raised more than £1,300 for St Cecilia’s care home.
Organiser Karen Weech said: “The weather was glorious and the event attracted a huge crowd throughout the afternoon. The event raised £1,383.71 for the residents’ fund.
“A huge thanks goes out to the Crown Tavern. The musical entertainment Hi Heel Sneakers and Nile Hollis had everybody tapping their toes, and the Pamperzone was a real treat with Jo Scales from Perfection and Val Scholey from Essentoily who provided toe polishes, eyebrow shaping, Indian head massages and foot massages thoughout the day.”
Others who helped included Prontaprint, Magic Mike, Partytime and Horsley’s butchers. Donations of raffle prizes included a signed Jonathan Greening Fulham FC shirt, and there were vouchers from Boyes, Dean’s Garden Centre, Lindsey’s Learn to Swim, Saks, North Yorkshire Moors Railway, and Eden Camp, among others.
Mike Padgham, owner of St Cecilia’s, in Stepney Road, said:“The day was just fantastic and a record sum of money was raised for the residents. I want to thank all the sponsors and particularly the Crown Tavern for letting us use their premises. The biggest thanks though goes to the public for coming along and also to the Weech family for all their hard work.”
