Mayor’s Charity Fundraiser – Market Place Saturday

There was a Mayor’s Charity Fundraiser taking place on the Market Place, between 10am and 3pm. Both the Mayor’s Charities, Yellow Submarine and Abingdon Damascus were working together. (The static bike was lent by Anytime Fitness.)

The Mayor, Cllr Cheryl Briggs, has a personal interest in both charities: Abingdon Damascus because she has done youth work in the past, and Yellow Submarine because of a family member.

Yellow Submarine work with young people with learning disability / autism, and look forward to moving into the Charter Day Centre.

The Abingdon DAMASCUS Youth Project continue to do a lot of youth outreach and workshops in South Abingdon.

There was information on one stall, a cake stall, various have a go activities including archery.

Abingdon Damascus got so many donations for their tombola, it was one of the biggest ever.

The Abingdon DAMASCUS Youth Project are hosting an exhibition at the Abingdon Museum from 26th-29th October. All the photos displayed were taken by young people of Abingdon and they were trying to get a sense of what life is like growing up in Abingdon.
