Dates: Saturday 25th June 2016
Event: Scarborough Armed Forces Day
Location: Scarborough foreshore and the Vintage area at Sandside
Amount raised: £1,304.38

We were fortunate to have been given 2 spots at the armed forces day (thanks to Rowena the event organiser), a double Charity stall along the foreshore and a vintage stall along the Sandside. The weather stayed nice all day and for the second year running we were kept busy all day on both stalls.

The 25th anniversary t-shirts proved to be very popular as did the spirit bottle lights on the vintage stall along with other glass and china items. We also had a visit from a veteran and his family (the Meade-Richards) and Nick stood on the stall with a collection tub, which helped to raise 170.63 in the tubs (thank you Nick). We also had visitors who were veterans and after reading the stories and talking to the staff on the stall said that they may join as they felt they needed help.

It was an early start for all and a late finish but ending the day with a fish and chip supper after a fantastic day, what more could you ask for.
