Sarah who visited the market with her little boy said:

“The Christmas Market had such a lovely atmosphere and my little boy absolutely loved seeing the donkeys. The Ukulele band was fab and kept my husband and little boy entertained whilst I was able to look around the stalls.”

Lucy who also attended, had to say of the event:

“The Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity Christmas pop-up market is a fabulous Christmas event.  The market was well organised and had a good variety of stalls with an excellent range of gifts (perfect for Christmas presents!). The market has a magical Christmas feel to it with choirs and local bands playing whilst you browse the stalls. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the two beautiful donkeys too – Robbie and Joe! I loved the free coffee and mince pie on entry, a brilliant touch. I’m much looking forward to the next event in 2020!”

Once again Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity would like to say thank you to DoubleTree by Hilton Harrogate Majestic Hotel & Spa for hosting the event, along with all the Independent Craft and Gift stall holders. We’d also like to thank everyone that donated towards the Prize Draw and all that attended for making it such a fabulous event and supporting HHCC raise valuable funds, we are extremely grateful for your kindness.
