Well known to Wetherby District Lion members as a partner with the 'Great Yorkshire Bike Ride', they have recently identified a need for pre-school children and their families by creating a 'Little Pips Baby Project' for children from as young as six weeks old ! Although helped by local authorises with funding for this educational provision, Hollybank has gone further by also offering support to parents and other family members.
When Wetherby Lions were approached to see if we could help equip this new unit members agreed unanimously to get involved, being pleased to visit on Thursday 17th August 2017 with a surprise donation of £928 to buy a specialised wheelchair accessible sandpit and to provide horticultural and planting sessions in a poly-tunnel within the grounds.
