Thank you!

Afternoon teas in Langcliffe Institute on 8 September were a      roaring success! Thanks to a lot of hard work by our volunteers and plenty of customers, the event raised £378.80.  Well done everyone – a fantastic effort!

Please note: we plan to scale down our bric-a-brac and book sales due to difficulties storing and transporting goods. Thank you to     everyone who, in the past, has kindly donated items for sale.

However we would still appreciate donations of raffle prizes and good quality pet bedding and accessories.


Our coffee morning in High Bentham on 17 August 2019 was well attended and meant we made a grand total of £300.20.        A great result – thanks all!

And we had another successful fund-raising effort in August on 24th in Settle where we sold most of our bric-a-brac with the result being £118 for our charity.

Clapham Street Market day at the end of July was wet – very wet! But that didn’t deter a hardy bunch of volunteers from doing their best to sell bric-a-brac from our soggy stall.  By the time the heavy rain set in during the afternoon and everyone abandoned ship, we’d raised £70.19. Thanks to all.

Our coffee morning in Clapham on 13 April 2019 raised a much     appreciated £218.54.  Two weeks later, a hectic afternoon of serving tea and cake in Langcliffe on 28 April added £367.42 to this month’s fund-raising total.

Thanks to all who helped and all who supported us.

Thanks to everyone who supported our coffee mornings at Hellifield in February and High Bentham in March. We raised £185.90 and £270.30 respectively.


We ended 2018 on quite a high! Our coffee morning and Christmas Fair at Clapham on 8 December was a jolly event  which raised £510.30, followed by the annual Christmas Raffle draw (with winners listed on our ‘News’ page) and a ‘Jacob’s Join’ festive lunch for all our volunteers added excitement! Thanks to everyone who has helped at our events during 2018.

On top of this, we need to thank the Co-op Community Fund and all the local members who contributed to the massive sum of £3,624.62 that was presented to our President in Bentham to mark the end of our spell as one of the three chosen local charities for 2018. Huge thanks to all.

What a year!
