The Livability Friends of York House – a group of local supporters and fundraisers – brought in family, friends and local residents for a community fayre, to raise funds for Livability’s York House.

Running from 1pm – 4pm on Saturday 24th June, around 300 people from the local community visited the fayre over the course of the day.

There was not a shortage of activities for visitors with the fayre including over 15 craft stalls, a bouncy castle, BBQs, a rodeo bull, live dance and entertainment, and lots more.

Susan Batty, who lives at Livability’s York House said:

‘What a great day. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the entertainment was brilliant!’

The fayre exceeded everyone’s expectations, raising a total of over £2,400 for the work of Livability.

Chair, Norman Hodgkin, Chair for the Livability Friends of York House said:

‘I am very pleased – this has really been a team effort! Livability staff and volunteers alike worked hard for a long time to make today a success.’

Livability’s York House Manager, Helen Holt said:

‘It has been a really nice day for the residents having the community come visit us, along with family, friends and Livability staff. We are so lucky to live in a generous community.’
