Shoppers bagged a bargain at YMCA Humber Car Boot sale

August 11, 2017

YMCA HUMBER recently hosted a Car Boot Sale filled with bargains and family fun on the grounds of their Peaks Lane Housing Project.

YMCA Humber’s Car Boot was a great success, the day was filled with family fun, a BBQ and live music. Fiona, our Positives Pathways Lead, organised the event. She said,

“We put on a community event to raise money for the continued development of the rooms at Peaks Lane.

“The day was a real success, I would like to thank staff for volunteering their time towards the event.

“It also gave the residents here a chance to demonstrate the skills they had learnt in cooking and other areas, while giving them a chance to be proud of their building.

“Residents volunteered their time to prepare the grounds running up to the event. Many of them have taken strimmer courses provided through the Orchard Project, it gave them a chance to put their skills into action.

“It has been a real heart-warming experience.”

Debbie, a resident at our Peaks Lane Project, helped prepare a Lemonade Stall for the event. She said,

“It was a most enjoyable day for everyone.”
