Weekend success for community centre’s first event since pandemic

A COMMUNITY hub had a successful weekend as it hosted its first summer fayre since the pandemic. 

Deafness Resource Centre on Denton’s Green Lane held the fayre on Saturday.

Approximately 150 people attended, with around £700 raised for the centre. 

Tanya McGibbon, Children, Young People, and Family Service Manager, said: “The fayre was great, lots of people came throughout the day and stall holders were really pleased.

“We raised approximately £700 which is fantastic and will help support the work of the Deafness Resource Centre.”

The fayre had a deeper significance to the centre as it marked the first summer event held since the pandemic, with staff grateful for those who attended. 

Helen Fitzgerald, Chief Officer of the centre, said: “It was great to see the centre being used by the local community for such a fun and rewarding event.

“Thank you to all the stall holders and people who came to support us on the day.”

Following the success on Saturday, Deafness Resource Centre has also announced that they will host a Christmas Fayre in November. 

Deafness Resource Centre has been providing its services to the community since it was established in 1928, and is partnered with other local and national organisations including St Helens Council, Children in Need, and Vision Support. 

The organisation, formerly named St Helens and District Society for Deaf People, has received many developments throughout its years and in 2009, it became a Registered Incorporated Charity and was given its present name.
