Five Richmondshire-based charities are to benefit from a year of fundraising by the district council’s chairman.
Coun Clive World has chosen to support the Gurkha Welfare Trust, North Country Theatre, Richmondshire Cricket Club Juniors, and junior rugby in Richmondshire (Richmond Juniors and Wensleydale Juniors) during his year in office.
And in his first event – a coffee morning held in June – he raised £210 for the pot.
Next up is a fashion show at Richmond Cricket Club on Tuesday, July 24, at 7.30pm with clothes by Larches Chainstore Outlet of Richmond. Tickets priced £3 are limited and available from Larches Chainstore Outlet, Richmondshire Cricket Club and Coun World.
