Volunteers were delighted to present a cheque for £65,694.00 at a Holmfirth Fundraising Committee meeting earlier this month.
Lots of people in the Huddersfield and Holmfirth area pitched in throughout 2012 to help raise this fantastic amount. Over half of the money was raised by Holmfirth artWEEK held during the first week of July. Pupils at Honley High School raised an impressive £2,900.00 and collections at supermarkets around Huddersfield and at Armitages and Totties garden centres contributed more than £7,500.00. A further £1,350.00 came from two charity markets held in Holmfirth.
The volunteers would like to say thank you for the many generous gifts made by people remembering lost loved ones or celebrating happy events.
The committee would be pleased to welcome new volunteers to help with events planned for the coming year. The next meeting will be at the Holmfirth Civic Hall, Trevor Stubley Room, on Monday 8 April 2013, at 7.30 pm.
