On Saturday 10th June, The Black Horse pub in Skipton, hosted a fun-packed party event to raise money for the latest appeal from The Principle Trust Children’s Charity in Skipton.
Coinciding with Skipton Gala, ‘The Principle Trust Children’s Charity Summer Party’ provided a great alternative to the fairground for those with limited funds and those wishing to shelter from Saturday’s heavy rain. The event took place in their upstairs function room and the children were joyfully entertained for the duration.
Hayley Kitching from The Principle Trust Children’s Charity, said:
‘Thank you to all our supporters who attended and to Louise Whiteside for organising the event on behalf of the Black Horse. It was a brilliant fun-packed afternoon for local kids and families and we were honoured to be able to support our local community and witness everyone come together’
A bouncy castle and inflatable ball pool proved to be very popular with the younger children, whilst the face painting, balloon modelling, crafting table and numerous ride-on toys provided hours of fun for others.
The children were also delighted to be able to meet Batman, Elsa and Anna from Frozen and the cast of Paw Patrol – some of whom got their young audience involved in a variety of party games and sing-alongs.
Lou Whiteside, said:
“The Charity Birthday Bash was a huge success and it was great to see the local community come together to help us raise money towards The Principle Trust Children’s Charity appeal to raise £100k for a new holiday home.”
Having successfully raised £750 on Saturday, employees of The Black Horse are determined to raise more. Four members of staff have signed up to take part in the ‘Total Warrior Challenge’ in Leeds, later this month. The Skipton Press would like to wish them every success and will continue to support both The Black Horse and The Principle Trust Children’s Charity until they have reached their target.
