'Supporting Older People' at Harrogate Volkswagen​

Our Harrogate Volkswagen dealership have been associated with the charity ‘Supporting Older People’ since 2015. 'Supporting Older People' is a charity that aim to alleviate loneliness and isolation often experienced by older people living on their own.

Harrogate held their first Christmas party for them in 2016 with 60 people being invited to join them each year.

The guests are served a two course lunch plus coffee and mince pies with prosecco, wine and Schloer flowing freely throughout the afternoon. There is a visit from Santa, with everyone receiving a Christmas present.

This Christmas was no different, with them hosting bingo, a quiz and a raffle. Everyone had a great day and the whole team got involved, wearing festive jumpers and helping throughout the day.

Throughout the year the Harrogate dealership run a tuckshop, with the profits going towards the buying of the presents at Christmas.

The community and local businesses all help out with the fabulous day. This years catering was provided by “The Roast Inn” Chris Fawcett and family. The tables, chairs, linen, crockery, glasses and flatware were hired from Bussey’s and raffles prizes this year were donated by individuals, Volkswagen UK and Roots and Fruits.
