It was raining money recently at The Bridge Hotel, Walshford when Wetherby District Lions Club had a gala cheque presentation evening distributing over £6000 to worthy charities and individuals.
£500 to Eckersley House
The Sick Children’s Trust,
£2000 each to St Gemma’s Hospice and The Alzheimer’s Society
£800 to Kirk Deighton Rangers A.F.C. for perimeter fencing
£125 to Wetherby Lion Joanne Hovell who completed The Great North Run for Martin House and
£100 to local resident Claire Maxted Wiggins who completed a sponsored zip wire drop off The Tyne Bridge for CoppaFeel , a breast cancer charity.
This amazing amount of money was only achieved by the continued generosity of the public in the Wetherby District area – so a very big “thank you” to them!
We look forward to a busy, exciting 2017 and continue to welcome any requests for help in any way.
