Food fair in aid of Wirral community centre lift appeal
A FOOD fair in aid of a Hoylake community centre's fundraising campaign for a new lift takes place later this month.
The Hoylake Food Fair will be held at The Parade in Hoyle Road on Sunday, October 13, from 10am-2pm.
Although this will be the seventh food fair to be held at the centre, this time it will being held to help raise funds to build and install a lift and provide an upstairs disabled access toilet at the venue.
There is currently no lift, making it difficult for those with mobility problems or heavy equipment to access events that are held upstairs, such as the food fair.
Vaughan Williams, chairman of the Trustees at The Parade, said: “The community is at the heart of everything we do here at The Parade and we want our facilities to be accessible to everyone”.
“There is always something going on at the centre and until we raise the money needed to build the disabled access facilities, it means that, unfortunately, some people miss out and we want to change that as quickly as possible.”
The food fair will include a range of stalls throughout The Parade selling a variety of products.
There will also be various cookery demonstrations from Adam Bowers, Wirral Chef Shine Winner from The Portrait House, Hoylake.
Originally built as a school in 1909, The Parade is now busier than ever before with a range of community classes and business meeting facilities.
As The Parade is a charity organisation, all the funds needed to maintain the centre are raised through hosting events or through donations.
