Aireborough Rotary open gardens and Hope Pastures fundraising successes

John Moorhouse cajoled four members into opening their gardens for an afternoon. Each offered something different and generated animated discussion and questions. Opportunities to buy plants also helped the fundraising and a range of refreshments were enjoyed. With close to 50 people making the trek to Ilkley, Guiseley and Rawdon it was no surprise to find that this venture raised a welcome £662 for Polio Plus.

Club member and Hope Pastures trustee Alyson Wort recently asked for volunteers to help once again at their annual Summer Fayre. The charity rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes horses, ponies and donkeys. On Sunday 18 July the sun shone, and the crowds poured in, all in a cheerful mood making handling car parking almost a pleasurable occupation. A fabulous total in excess of £4500 was raised on the day. On Facebook thanks went to ‘Aireborough Rotary Club for their brilliant parking skills’. Hope the high viz tabards made a good impression on the drivers.
