Local Fundraising Manager for the NSPCC, Elaine Kaye said:

“It was a thoroughly enjoyable event in beautiful surroundings, and such am amazing amount of money to raise over lunch. I would like to say a very special thank you to the volunteers who made this event possible especially Liz Donovan, Sue Davidson, Nancy Norton and Margaret Gibson whose unstinting support and passion for helping children never ceases to amaze me.”

“Thanks to their efforts we can be there for even more children when they need us most, whether it be through Childline, our schools service or through our service centres in Yorkshire who run a number of therapeutic services for children and their families.”
