Thanks to all for rais­ing record sum

The Scarborough Evening News - - THE VOICE OF SCARBOROUGH -

The event or­gan­is­ers would like to say a very big thank you to all who at­tended and sup­ported the 2017 Scar­bor­ough Gold­wings Light Pa­rade.

You can all con­grat­u­late your­selves on a job well done since your ef­forts have raised a record sum this year. With York­shire Air Am­bu­lance staff on board we took a mas­sive £8,910.08 at our bril­liant show.

This year the event raised funds for the York­shire Air Am­bu­lance and there was a steady stream of spec­ta­tors all day long com­ing to see our Gold­wings dis­plays on the West Pier and in Fore­shore Road. Long range poor weather pre­dic­tions turned out to be com­pletely wrong for Scar­bor­ough and apart from one 20 min­utes shower on Satur­day morn­ing, the event basked in sun­shine most of the af­ter­noon and well into the evening, sav­ing a beau­ti­ful clear night for our glit­ter­ing pa­rade and spec­tac­u­lar fire­works dis­play.

Fi­nally we would like to thank the York­shire Air Am­bu­lance team again for pro­vid­ing all the gaze­bos, the he­li­van, and tombola stall plus an ex­cel­lent team of ad­di­tional vol­un­teer col­lec­tors.

Our thanks must also go to the won­der­ful Gold­wing rid­ers who came long dis­tances to be in Scar­bor­ough, to our vol­un­teers from Gold­wings for Life, White Rose Gold­wings and Gold­wings North Wales, James Cor­ri­gan, the busi­nesses that do­nated prizes and print­ing spon­sor­ship, South Bay Traders’ As­so­ci­a­tion, Starfire fire­works, York­shire Coast Ra­dio, Scar­bor­ough News, Scar­bor­ough TV News, Dis­cov­erYork­, Coast and County Ra­dio, and of course all you su­per spec­ta­tors who turned up in your thou­sands to sup­port this daz­zling char­ity event.
