Join us for free festive fun for the whole family, raising money for a fantastic cause!
Here at family run Wellburn Care homes, we love the festive season, and this year, our festive highlight will be our Christmas & Craft Market, held in the grounds of our Grimston Court care home in Grimston, York.
The central focus will be around our numerous craft stalls, with local York crafters selling exciting and unique products, ideal for stocking fillers and presents. There’ll also be live music from a number of different artists, all performing music with a festive theme. We’ll have food and drinks trucks too, with delicious goodies and festive tipples on offer.
For the children, we’ll be inviting Santa Claus into his grotto for visits and photo opportunities. There’ll also be other special guests and lots more entertainment, on what promises to be an afternoon of festive family fun.
Wellburn Care home’s Chairman, Rachel Beckett, also highlights the serious side to this year’s Festive Craft Market. “I’m really proud of my team for the effort they’ve put into organising the market, but especially proud of their focus and priority on putting something back into the local community. This year we’ve partnered up with the amazing team at York Foodbank – to raise as much money and donations as possible, all going to support their vital and much needed work.”
The York Foodbank, run by The Trussell Trust, provides emergency food and support to local people in need. As Rachel explains, “It looks like a much larger number of locals than usual, may well find this winter financially difficult to navigate. So we we’d love to see as many visitors as possible, and for them to show as much support as they can for those in the local community that are struggling.”
To help, we’re asking where possible, those who visit our market to bring food donations to leave in our donations points, and we’ll have our own stall, selling festive crafts, with all profits being donated too. There’ll also be raffles, competitions and prizes, all with an eye on raising more money.
Please visit our Festive Craft Market on Saturday 3rd December from 12pm to 5pm, to enjoy a wonderful afternoon of fun for the whole family, and help us to raise as much money for the York Foodbank as possible. We hope to see you there!
