Support us: Lord Mayor's Charities 2016-2017



York Civic Trust is delighted to be one of the four organisations in York chosen to benefit from the 2016-2017 Lord Mayor's Charities. The Rt Hon Lord Mayor, Councillor Dave Taylor, is a longstanding member of the Trust. We are delighted to support all events which are part of this plan.

You can now support the Lord Mayor's Raffle!  The First Prize is a fabulous Gift Life Membership of York Civic Trust (can be bought at £400 but is a lifetime's investment in you and York!).  Second Prize is Gift Annual Civic Trust Membership, and there are lots of other prizes.  Tickets are only £2 each and the draw will take place in Fairfax House on Friday 5 May at 4pm.  Get tickets, and hand stubs and money in, at Fairfax House.

Charity partners St Nicks have created a Lord Mayor's Chocolate trail around York for Easter weekend - did you take part?

On Friday 28 April there is the annual Lord Mayor's competition at Pike Hills Golf Club. Entry is £25 per person or £100 for a team of four. Tee-off times are from 8am to 2pm and it is a Stableford competition, with the best two scores to count on each hole. The entry fee includes golf, tea or coffee and a bacon buttie before you start! Bar facilities and catering will also be available throughout the day, with fundraising activities also taking place. If you would like to take part - and play for the unique opportunity to have your name engraved on the trophy, please indicate your preferred tee-time on the booking form or by return of email, and we will allocate on a first come first served basis. Bookings are now open.

On Friday 5 May you can come to Gurkha Curry night in the Guildhall. Only £20 per person for an amazing buffet of traditional Nepalese curries cooked by the chefs from 245 Squadron, hosted inside the historic Guildhall. Contact anne.platt@york.gov.uk to book. Hint: this sells out quickly!

At Heritage weekend (10-11 September) Trust members had fun offering a series of walks to York residents and visitors to our city, "Get to know your York". At least 600 people took part and we raised money for the Lord Mayor's fund.  We plan to repeat this on 23 and 24 June 2017.......
