The annual Harvest Festival held in Slingsby’s Sports Club on 8th October was enjoyed by over 50 people. As well as harvest hymn singing and slightly irreverent readings from once a year ‘vicar’ Mike Coates, there was bingo, a raffle, a pie and pea supper and an auction of baking and produce.
All proceeds were for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and as usual people were extremely generous and almost £450 was raised. The Sports Club added a donation to make the total up to £500 for the night.
Thanks to all who contributed financially or donated prizes to the event.
The staff at Yorkshire Air Ambulance were notified of the sum raised and they in turn advised us that this money will bring the total amount raised and donated to the charity by the Sports Club to just over £7000.
A representative from the charity will be coming to Slingsby in mid November to formally receive the cheque and acknowledge the contributions made by Club Members.
