Resurrected Bites fundraising events to combat "worrying" monthly deficit

Harrogate charity Resurrected Bites has launched two new fundraising events as it battles a £10,000 monthly deficit. 

The charity runs community cafes and community groceries using good quality food surplus. 

Last year 8,000 covers were served at the cafes and 6,500 shops were done in the community groceries.

But the charity is facing a hefty monthly deficit and is hosting two fundraising events - a choir performance and a family fun day.

On Saturday 8th June at 7.30pm, the Eurythmia Ensemble will be performing at St Mark’s Church on Leeds Road. 

The event is being organised by the Harrogate and District Soroptimists who support Resurrected Bites with volunteers and fundraising. 

Val Hills, former President of the organisation and café volunteer said: 

“The choir has an excellent reputation and we are really looking forward to listening to them in the beautiful setting that St Mark’s Church offers.”  

Tickets are available from trybooking.com/uk/DHDK

And on 23rd June from 10am-6pm, Jade Archer, one of the Resurrected Bites volunteers, is running a family fun day. 

The event will held at Harrogate Rugby Club.

Jade said: 

“We are excited to be offering a bouncy castle, fair rides, food stalls, crafts and live performances. 

“We are extremely grateful that the fun day is being sponsored by Verity Frearson and hopefully the Verity Frearson Bear will be joining us.”

Michelle Hayes, CEO of Resurrected Bites said:

 “We are so grateful to all of the people who are working hard to support our organisation with fundraisers. 

“We couldn’t keep operating without the support of our community. 

“We recently received a cheque for a whopping £1,640 from Laura Dudley of Painting Pots Knaresborough who had organised The Great Knaresborough Bunny Hunt to support three local charities.

“Our financial situation is worrying and so if anyone else would like to help to keep Resurrected Bites running, please email Sarah admin@resurrectedbites.co.uk and she can let you know all of the ways that you could help.”
