Sheep Day

sheep day 2

One of the highlights of the year along Skipton’s award-winning High Street is the Sheep Day festival. This year, Friends of Aireville Park were delighted to have our own stall, with face painting, a lucky sheep dip and a unique sheep tombola. Daring customers were invited to put their hand in the sheep’s fleece-lined bottom to see if they could bring out a winning token.

Alongside our chocolate prizes, there was an impressive range of alcoholic ones, all generously donated from local companies Keelham, Dark Horse, North Brewing Company, Booths, Growling Shrew, Naylor, Goose Eye, Beer Monkey, Wine Rack and Majestic. Thank you!

In total our stall raised over £1,000 for the new playground in Aireville Park – thanks in large part to match-funding from Barclays (known as Baaa-clays for the purposes of Sheep Day).

Phase 1 of the new playground build is due to begin in the Autumn (yippee). Many thanks to all our wonderful supporters so far. Any donations towards phase 2, to help us secure all the exciting play equipment we so dearly want, would be very gratefully received!
