Despite an early downpour of rain it turned out to be a lovely day, we raised £45 and lots of awareness of Lollipop!
We raised £145 at our little stall at the weekend! Thank you to the amazing volunteers who ran the stall for us – photos to come!

We had a great day on Saturday at St Crux in York! Our stalls outside were a great success and the weather was perfect with lots of people buying cakes and sandwiches from our cafe. We raised £902 in total and we would like to thank all the amazing volunteers that came to help us out!
We are delighted and grateful to Northern Energy who organised their annual charity golf day for the benefit of Lollipop on 1oth June. They had a fantastic day and raised a whopping £10,000!
A huge thank you to everyone at Northern Energy for your amazing support! We will be holding a cheque presentation soon and will post the photos here.
So Lollipop can continue to provide free activities to its members we need to concentrate on summer fundraisers in York during June and July and we need our supporter’s help!
Saturday 18th June we will be at St Crux serving food and refreshments all day with stalls outside the hall
Sunday 26th June is West Bank Park Fair 1-4pm
Sunday 3rd July is the Sleeper Market in New Earswick 10am – 2.30pm
Sunday 10th July we have a stall at the Dragon Boat Race 10am – 4pm
We need lots of volunteers to bake, staff stalls with Lollipop staff, transport stall items, help setting up and tidying away. All these fundraising events are family-friendly so you can help out for an hour or two whilst bringing the whole family along for some summer fun!

We were surprised and delighted to receive a donation from Shouksmiths York last week! Shouksmiths donated £1,000 to Lollipop in 2021, and have now donated a further £2,000! This is amazing news and these funds will go towards providing awesome FREE activities for our members during the second half of the year. A huge thank you to Shouksmiths for recognising the work of Lollipop and for their continued support!
Lollipop has received a £250 donation from a supporter to run digital music apps sessions for our members! The donation was received through a contact of our Ambassador Paul Whittaker and the sessions will be devised and delivered by Sean Chandler from the National Centre for Early Music I Can Play! team in the Autumn term of 2022. Exact dates are to be confirmed. They will be a short series of three online sessions held after school on Tuesdays.
We will keep you posted in the newsletter and in the Upcoming Activities page of the website. If you or your child/ren are members of Lollipop and are interested in the sessions please express your interest to Becky at firstname.lastname@example.org
