Staff and residents of Goldcrest House, the specialists in autism, raised £480 for Goole special school Riverside during a successful summer fair thanks to the local community.
Held at Goldcrest House the garden party was attended by the Deputy Mayor of Goole, Ian Blackburn and saw the local community, friends and family sample the hospitality and party fare produced by the residential home’s residents.
Handmade garden planters, cakes and buns, cream teas, and burgers from the BBQ were a huge hit with the local businesses Carlisle DIY, Kennings DIY, Morrisons, and Tesco supermarkets supplying fantastic raffle prizes.
Eileen Smale, activities co-ordinator at Goldcrest House says: “I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone that made the event a success. The raffle prizes donated were absolutely fantastic, we couldn’t have asked for any more local support, we really are very grateful.”
