Whilst we are not, in the main, a fund raising organisation we try to respond positievely to some of the many requests we get for financial support. We have several key fundraising events
- Hedge-Hoggers annual cider and beer festival - in June
- Community Fair (in August in the town centre)
- CAMRA Real Ale, Cider and Arts Festival (in March)
- Concerts (usually in the run up to Christmas)
As well as these larger events we have many smaller ad-hoc activities during the year to raise funds(BBQ, garden party,quiz,sponsored walks).
Quick view of Community Fair August 2019
Annual event in the pedestrian precinct when Rotary take over the area and set up tables used by local charitable organistaions to display their wares, tell their story and sometimes raise funds. Cavaliers normally have a table to raise funds by selling bric-brac or plants.
Our annual street fair in Scarborough in August 2019 was another successful event.The day went well, with over 28 stalls hired out to charities who joined in the fun and serious business of collecting cash for their own good causes. Despite the dramatic weather change after lunch the day was considered to be a great success. Cavaliers raised about £1,000 from stall hire, their own plant and bric-a-brac stall all for distribution to local charities.
