Rotary Club of Harrogate Brigantes Christmas Appeal 2017

Once again the people of Harrogate and customers of Asda have given wonderful support to Rotary’s Christmas Appeal donating a fantastic £5500 spread over separate collections for Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Dementia Forward, Parkinson’s UK and Rotary supported local charities.

On behalf of the Rotary Club of Harrogate Brigantes, I am writing to thank the people of Harrogate, Customers of Asda for their generosity this year and since 1995 when we first started our Christmas Appeals. In that time donations have raised around £105,000 which we have used to support many local charities.  

This year £1921 was raised for Yorkshire Air Ambulance over, £830 for Parkinson’s UK, £1130 for Dementia Forward and £1622 for ‘Other charities supported by Rotary’ .

Our thanks must also go to ASDA and its staff for their support over the years, especially Angela Smith, and to Promax Access Ltd. for its sponsorship of the cost of the sweets this year.

Above all, I think that the generosity of the people of Harrogate has shown that the true spirit of Christmas is alive and well in “our town”

A Happy and Prosperous New Year to everybody

Yours sincerely

Howard Rayner
