Judith had the pleasure of attending the “Buttershaw-by-the-Beach” community bash alongside scores of local residents. Bathed in warm Summer sunshine, Judith and local residents enjoyed activities themed to offer a taste of the British seaside.
This community bash, thrown by Sandale Community Trust at their well-known Community Hub in Buttershaw, in partnership with Bradford Youth Service, Incommunities and TESCO, offered residents and their families the opportunity to enjoy a man-made beach and paddling pool whilst sampling candy floss, popcorn and ice cream. Those who were feeling more adventurous were able to ride a rodeo bull, inflatable slides and obstacle course and duel with each other gladiator style.
Speaking afterwards Judith said “It was a real pleasure to be invited along to this community bash. I had a lot of fun speaking to local residents and enjoying the many activities laid on by Sandale Trust. They are a real asset to the community, doing invaluable work for the residents. I am already looking forward to their next event which I am certain will be an even greater success”
As the community bash was drawing to a close, Judith was asked to cut the ceremonial ribbon to mark the grand re-opening of the refurbished New 4U Charity Shop. After a lick of paint and more than a little elbow grease, the revamped charity shop located at the Community Hub has now reopened its doors. It will continue its good work offering local residents a range of quality furniture, clothes and day to day goods at very low prices.
Judith commented “It was wonderful to be in attendance at the reopening of the New4U Charity Shop, which over the years has helped a very many families in the local area on low incomes to get by in difficult times. It’s a critical local facility, and I am pleased it has a bright future.”
Andy Walsh, CEO of Sandale Trust said “It was a pleasure to have Judith along to our Summer bash. Community events like this are key to bringing the community together, forging stronger community ties, and importantly offering residents and their families who struggle on low incomes an opportunity to enjoy themselves at no cost. Many local families tell us they can’t remember the last time they went to the seaside – so this summer we brought the beach to them. It was wonderful to have Judith along to cut the ceremonial ribbon on our revamped New 4U Charity Shop. This facility is so important, and will continue to offer much needed day to day goods at low prices. In these difficult times, it’s key to helping our community.”
