Charity BBQ at Harrogate Railway FC to support your local NHS

Harrogate Hospital & Community Charity (HHCC) is inviting people to join in a Summer BBQ which will include lots of fun activities to raise funds to support local NHS services.

It’s the first BBQ event HHCC has hosted which works to provide specialist equipment, training and services to help enhance treatment and facilities for patients, families and NHS staff at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust.

Following the immense pressures of the pandemic, it is an opportunity for the community to come together, show their support and enjoy a fun packed day of family activities including live entertainment, donkey rides, face painting and much more.

The event takes place on Sunday 29 August, 10.30-4pm at Harrogate Railway Athletic FC. Tickets are available for a donation of £13 per adult (aged 14 and over) children over the age of 3 are £4 (under 3s are free) with proceeds received going towards making a difference to patients and their families.

Each ticket includes: entry, drink on arrival, food from the BBQ,  strawberries and cream and live entertainment. They can be purchased here:

Sammy Lambert, Charity and Volunteer Manager, said: “We are really proud to support the work of our valued NHS colleagues. The Summer BBQ is a lovely way for the local community to come together and we are hugely grateful for all their support throughout the pandemic in the most challenging of times.

“We are looking forward to hosting a fabulous event and do hope people will be able to join us for what promises to be a great afternoon.”
