A festive, fun-filled day at Sycamore Hall care home got the Ripon community involved to raise money for a minibus trip to The Yorkshire Dales for residents.
This year, Sycamore Hall care home's annual Christmas Fayre was held on Saturday 2 December. The day, organised to raise money for a minibus trip to The Dales, was a huge success and was attended by Ripon's Mayor, Cllr Pauline McHardy, and the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Adrian Morgan.
Ripon's local community got involved in selling their wares, which included homemade cakes, hot chocolate cones, reindeer food, stained glass ornaments, handmade wooden ornaments, jewellery, bric-a-brac, and even The Body Shop had a stall selling beauty treats. A 'Guess How Many Sweets in a Jar' game kept the children busy, and the tombola and raffle proved to be very popular too. Over £570 was raised to go towards the trip.

Sycamore Hall's Manager, Christina Medway-Steel, commented, "It was fantastic to see so many local people in the Home, we all enjoyed the buzzing atmosphere. The money raised will really help towards a fabulous 'out and about' trip to The Dales for the residents."
"Lots of our residents commented on how lovely it was to see so many children at Sycamore Hall and on what a fun day it has been."
