The Black Horse To Raise Money For Skipton Charity SELFA


By Alexis Wilson-Barrett 


Popular Skipton pub, The Black Horse, is supporting local charity SELFA by hosting two fundraising events in recognition of the charity’s 10th anniversary.

SELFA is a Skipton-based charity that runs after-school clubs, holiday clubs and residential trips for vulnerable, disadvantaged and disabled children.

Throughout the year, their experienced volunteers host various fun-packed workshops and activity sessions for children referred to the non-profit organisation by a support group or a professional such as a GP, Teacher or Social Worker. Siblings of the referred children are also able to attend and participate in the carefully organised activities, designed to increase confidence and boost self-esteem.

SELFA has received generous support from various organisations, such as Children in Need and Comic Relief, but still relies heavily on support from the local community.

The Black Horse will raise funds for the children’s charity by hosting two fundraising events on May 9th 2017. From 2pm until 5pm, there will be a children’s party with a bouncy castle and soft play (provided by event sponsor – Yorkshire Dales Inflatables), entertainers, face painters, soft play and various fun-filled games and craft activities. The entry price is just £5 per child and each will receive a drink and a bag of sweets. From 7pm, the function room will host an evening of fancy dress and musical entertainment with a 70s/80s tribute act, karaoke and a disco.

Event organiser and Deputy Manager of The Black Horse – Lou Whiteside, will also be holding a raffle and tombola on the day, to raise further funds for SELFA.
