We attended and sponsored this year’s Thirsk & Sowerby Festival on the Flatts where hundreds of visitors to the festival participated in a series of competitions that the leading estate agent organised to raise money for local charity The Clock.
The Thirsk team invited people to guess how many balloons they had crammed into one of our MINIs and also hosted a ‘Guess the Thirsk Landmarks’ competition, which challenged entrants to identify four of the town’s leading attractions from abstract photographs.
The Clock is an independent charitable organisation which delivers a wide range of services to young people and adults across North Yorkshire.
Andrew Skelton, who manages the Thirsk office on Castlegate, said: “This year’s Thirsk & Sowerby Festival on the Flatts was a superb event that attracted several thousand visitors throughout the day. It was a beautiful sunny day and there were a wide range of attractions on offer for the whole family including a dog show and agility course, archery, birds of prey displays, bouncy castles, soap box racing, food and craft stalls.
“Our exhibition stand was extremely popular with visitors taking part in our two competitions and it’s great to lend our support to local charity The Clock, which does a fantastic job and has been making a genuine difference to lots of local people for many years.”
