We would like to say a huge thank you to all the wonderful pupils, their families, and staff at Water Street Primary School who raised a fantastic £176 towards the new children’s play area when they all swapped school uniform for something green on Friday 26th May 2017.
It’s really very exciting to see that our fundraising campaign is becoming a whole community effort. And if you’ve got any ideas of how you can help us meet our £100,000 target please do get in touch!
This weekend sees the return of the Skipton Gala, a procession that begins in Westmoreland Street at 1pm through the High Street and all the way to Aireville Park.
“For over a century Skipton Gala has been supporting the community by raising money for local organisations and charities”
We are very proud to be supporting the Skipton Charities Gala committee by helping to collect donations for them, who support many groups in our area.
We will be wearing our Friends of Aireville Park t-shirts. Do come and say hello if you see us, ask us about the park and, if you can, leave a donation.
We kicked off our fundraising campaign for the new children’s play area by running the Skipton Town Hall Charity Cafe on 1st May bank holiday. It was great to see so many faces supporting us on the day and to also meet visitors to Skipton. It gave us a great opportunity to share our exciting plans for the park. Cafe customers throughout the day enjoyed a selection of hot breakfast sandwiches, teacakes, homemade soup, homemade baking, pies and peas.
The event was supported with a donation from the wonderful people at Keelham’s Farm Shop, who supplied all the meat, pies and bread products. And on the day we raised a wonderful £700, bringing our total raised so far to £13,300.
We would like to say a massive thank you to all of our wonderful hard working volunteers who helped to run the cafe on the day as well as all the talented bakers and bunting makers and of course all of you lovely people who were our customers. It was a great start to our fundraising campaign and watch this space for future events.
