Two local York companies, Bluebird Care and GiveBackWorks, worked with the York Teaching Hospital Charity to organise a Summer Fair and raised over £575 for the Star Appeal.
The Summer Fair took take place on Wednesday 13 June at the Park Inn Hotel in York. There was a range of stalls including reflexology, massage, cupcakes, health and beauty, jewellery and handmade gifts. There was also a raffle, tombola and cake stall. Staff at Bluebird Care also organised a 'Guess how many calories' in the giant kitkat adding a further £25 to the overall total.
The event was sponsored by three GiveBackWorks members; Arrow Property Care, RTL Wear Ltd and Hog Roast Yorkshire.
