We were delighted to see great weather for our event on Saturday celebrating 35 years in business. The team had organised a charity fun day to raise money for Selby Young People’s Cooperative (SYPCO). The event was very well supported and everyone seemed to have fun whilst raising money for this great local charity.
We had some fun competitions on the day including a “Peel-a-thon” where customers tried to beat the Mister C’s team at potato peeling and also a spot the 80’s staff member. There were some fantastic prizes won including “a year’s supply of fish & chips”. The team all embraced the spirit of the 80’s era wearing fancy dress!
We were delighted to have raised £1066, Paula Walter from SYPCO, is thrilled and has confirmed the money will go towards learning software packages and also Lego, which young people with autism find particularly enjoyable.
SYPCO is a new service to support people aged 18 years and upwards with specific learning difficulties, autism and mental health needs. SYPCO works in two specific areas these are; Life Skills, which includes things like travel training, managing money, cooking and house care; and also; Arts & Crafts Enterprise, the service users will make arts and crafts and sell them in a pop-up shop to make money which is then invested back into SYPCO.
We are really pleased with the support received and would like to thank those who came along on the day, local businesses and some of our industry partners who helped us celebrate this landmark achievement for our business.
Here’s to our next 35 years!
