Big Community Challenge


Thank you!

Over 150 volunteers came together from 13 – 15 October to transform six community spaces at schools, dementia care homes and local parks. On behalf of York Cares and the children, families and local residents you supported, a HUGE thank you for your time!

“Please pass on our thanks to the volunteers – they have made such a difference to the gardens at Morrell House, their hard work has created two spaces for our residents to walk without restrictions – fab job from both groups.” – Anne MacPherson, Home Manager

“On behalf of the whole school and the governing body of St Paul’s, I’d like to thank you for a fantastic achievement in bringing our playground back to life. The playground is such an important part of our children’s day and you have returned it to be a safer and more enjoyable environment for everyone” – Phil Bruce, Governor, St Paul’s School
