May 2017

Written by MB

May has been a very busy month for HHfR!

On the 7th, we were at Pickering Road Orchard with our stall and tombola for a May Day event. May pole dancing, pattie throwing, cakes, and delicious apple juice pressed from the orchard itself!Rosie at Pickering Rd Orchard 7 05 17

 

On the 12th Harvey, Lewis and Elliott did a sponsored swim at East Hull Baths, who donated a swimming lane for the boys. Between them they did over three miles.

On the 17th, our second annual music extravaganza at Kardomah97 went brilliantly, as five amazing local acts performed to a packed room to raise us over £630. And on the 19th, a Pie & Peas Quiz Night at the Clarendon was packed for another great night out.

On the 22nd we partnered with Abid Pervez, who took two van loads of donated clothes to send to people who have lost their homes and belongings through conflict and war. We were also able to give him some of the funds recently raised at aforementioned events, to enable him to buy much needed provisions for people in Calais.
