This year, Spectrum has been working hard in support of our chosen charity, Target Ovarian Cancer. Aside from our other fundraisers such as Jo's Three Peaks Challenge and our donations of fifty pence every time a feminine hygiene bin is sited, we decided it was time to organise a big event that the whole community could take part in: a barn dance!
Last Saturday, over one hundred people gathered at Stepney Hill Farm Scarborough to support Target Ovarian Cancer and The Cambridge Centre (as well as enjoying the dancing, hog roast and bucking bronco of course.) The event turned out to be a great success, not only raising £1,074.00 for the charities, but also providing our locals with a fun-filled evening.
The event encompassed an array of activities which kept our guests thoroughly entertained. A live performance from The Hatton School of Performing Arts kicked off the evening with a bang, encouraging everyone to get up on the dance floor. This enthusiasm continued with many people giving the bucking bronco a go - 48 seconds was the record! After re-fuelling ourselves with hot pork sandwiches, the scarecrow fancy dress competition commenced, kicking up some fierce rivalry with our very own Pete Thompson and Kieren Barnett, who both narrowly missed out on the winning spot! All in all, a great evening was had by everyone who attended, with many exclaiming 'what a fun night!'
Finally, we would like to say how grateful we are for the support that we received, from generous donations to enthusiastic volunteers, without them the event wouldn't have been possible!
Once again, a massive thank you to everyone who supports our chosen charity fundraising and helps us raise funds for Target Ovarian Cancer!
P.S. Keep your eyes peeled for the next event...
