12:34pm Tuesday 1st April 2014 in News
Ben Rhydding retirement village Audley Clevedon has donated more than £200 to charity Parkinsons UK after a fundraising race night organised by one of the residents.
Audley Clevedon resident, Brian Lee, organised the charity race night for both those living in the retirement village and club members.
Mr Lee, alongside friends and fellow Audley Clevedon residents Peter and Cilla Seago, presented a £224 cheque to the chairman of Parkinson's UK Skipton Branch, Allan Cawood, and treasurer, and Gill iseman.
Residents at Audley Clevedon chose Parkinson’s UK as it is a cause close to their hearts.
Audley Clevedon’s general manager, David Kanarens, said: “Our successful activities have seen the residents at Audley Clevedon raise an impressive £224.10 to date for Parkinson’s UK and we are indebted to the hard work of Mr Lee for his incredible fundraising drive.
“We have been overwhelmed by people’s generosity and look forward to the many future events we have planned in aid of this very deserving charity.”
