Lord Mayor's Charities 2015 - 2016 
Last Friday we had the priviledge of collecting our cheque from the 2015 - 2016 Lord Mayor - Cllr. Sonja Crisp and the Civic party. 
The presentation of cheques, to all 3 charites, which were supported during the year was made with the York Press attending to take photographs. 
OCAY would like to record a huge thank you to the Civic party for their support and for the money raised which will enable OCAY to continue to support the citizens of York aged 50+.
