A Flag Day thank you


Many thanks to all who attended Flag Day at Café Indie last Saturday.

Our thanks are also due to the bands who played for us.

The hot dogs were provided courtesy of David Jenkins Meats and Pocklington’s bakery – again our thanks to them for their patience with us and their excellent service.

The event was photographed by three North Lindsey College students who will be producing a video for us. It counted as a work experience placement and we were pleased to join with NLC to cement community relationships with SUFC fans.

The raffle held on the night was a great success with many Trust members generously providing prizes for us or donating to the charity fund. After sorting out the ticket money (some of which goes to the Café) and the raffle monies we are delighted to be able to announce that we are going to be making a £500 donation to local charity, “the Forge project”.

They do tremendous work supporting homeless in the town, something they have done for seventeen years. Some of the main issues they deal with as well as homelessness are mental health problems, substance and alcohol misuse and social isolation.

Their day centre offers warm nutritious meals four days a week along with a warm welcome, support and guidance.

The Forge works with many other agencies and we are pleased to be able to support them in their work due to the generosity of those who attended and supported Flag Day.

That makes it a total of around £2k for the events we’ve had at Café indie, which has all been raised and given to good causes.

Thank you for your continued support.
