Launch day of the 'Millie Wright Children's Charity'.
Join us from 10.30 on The Green, Upper Poppleton for our charity launch event and memorial tree planting in memory of Millie.
Saturday 7th May would have been Millie's 14th birthday so we want to mark the event as a celebration of life.
The day will begin from 10.30 with a zumba warm-up ahead of a 5k fun run - please register for the run now - all ages welcome! The run will start at 11.00 at which time various outdoor craft stalls and stands will open. We invite additional stalls - especially those that celebrate the talents of young people, perhaps art, craft, candles, jewellery.
Tea's, coffee and refreshments will be available throughout at the Methodist Church Hall.
Permission has been granted for a memorial tree to be planted on the village green. This has been kindly donated by D-Tail Plants of York. The tree, a flowering red chestnut, will be planted and dedicated at 1pm.
The day will also represent the official launch of The Millie Wright Children's Charity, also known as 'Millie's Children's Charity' where representatives from Leeds Children's hospital will attend and be invited to say a few words after the tree planting.
At 3pm local York band, Living Legends, will perform at the Lord Collingwood pub - so it really should be a day with something for everyone!
Please register now for the fun run or to hold a stall at the event. Email us at email@example.com for more information.
