Market fun day boosts Daisy Appeal
A fund-raising day held by Beverley Market traders raised more than £2,000 for the Daisy Appeal at Castle Hill Hospital. Families took part in a children’s treasure hunt and there were great prizes on offer donated by businesses from Beverley and the surrounding area in a grand raffle and a tombola at the event in Saturday Market.
To tie in with the Tour De Yorkshire weekend, shoppers were also challenged to ride as far as they could on a static bicycle in 10 minutes, with a prize for the winner. All proceeds from the day went towards the Daisy Appeal, which is funding a new £7.2 million Cyclotron and Radio pharmacy Unit at Castle Hill Hospital in Cottingham, which will be used in the earlier detection of cancer, heart disease and dementia.
Organiser Lisa Gray, of the Beverley Group of the National Market Traders Association, who runs the Little Cheese Pantry stall, said: “I’m really pleased with the amount we’ve raised – it’s a lot more than we hoped for. There was an amazing atmosphere on the day and we’re all extremely pleased to be handing over more than £2,000 to such an amazing cause.”
