Runners and Support at the Yorkshire-Lancashire border

On one of the longest days of the year, June 18th, about 20 runners successfully raced the sun from the east coast to the west and won. They were doing it to raise funds for Restore.

We Raced the Sun and WON!

Chase Sun winnersRunners for Restore beat the sun to the west coast in their Chasing the Sun Challenge raising over a thousand pounds to provide homes for homeless people in York.

Leaving Bridlington beach just before 4.30am at sunrise, the first of 20 runners began a relay with the target of reaching the Lancashire Coast before the sun set over the Irish Sea 130 miles away.

The Great Restore Cake and Book Sale

St Crux Church HallAre you free on Tuesday 28th April at any time between 9am and 3:30pm? Would you consider coming into the centre of town to help at our fundraising café and bric-a-brac sale? We will be setting up from 9am at the little church at the end of the Shambles, St Crux. Any time that you could give – making refreshments, serving customers or selling bric-a-brac we would be very grateful indeed.

Equally if you are unable to make it on the day, but could bake buns, cakes and other Mary Berry style delicacies, that would be an enormous help.

All the proceeds go to Restore York to directly support our tenants as they work through all the issues that prevent them having life in all its fullness.
