Ilkley Macmillan Cancer Support Committee raises a record £18,500
8:00am Saturday 2nd February 2013 in News
Residents and businesses in the Ilkley area are being thanked for helping cancer charity supporters raise a record sum of £18,500.
The money was raised during 2012 for the Ilkley Macmillan Cancer Support Committee, which has been hosting events and raising funds for 20 years.
The charity’s fundraising manager for York and the Yorkshire Dales, Robyn Mountain Wade, said: “The Ilkley committee is a terrific committee who host wonderful events such as their annual fashion show, quiz nights and coffee mornings, not to mention their hard work at supermarket collections.
“However they could not do this alone. It is amazing how the local companies and residents get behind the committee.”
The group starts its fund-raising for 2013 with a quiz night on Wednesday, March 6, at Ilkley Playhouse, on Weston Road, from 7.30pm. Tickets cost £10.50, including a fish and chip supper, and there will be a bar. Call (01943) 607615 for tickets.
