The Holbeck (formerly Holbeck WMC) held a charity night on Saturday 10 March 2018 raising £1,320.30 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
The club has now raised a total of £2,415.02 for this charity. Ian Pickup from the club explained:
“The Air Ambulance is very close to our heart as one of our young persons needed it. He sadly died three years ago so our thoughts are with the family, who I’m pleased to say came on the night.”
Lots of members wore a t-shirt with a picture of Rhys on the front and the Air Ambulance logo on the back.
A member of the Baker family said:
“It was a great tribute to Rhys, we all appreciate it. A big thank you to everyone who donated the prizes also thanks to all who helped to organise it.”
There was a name the teddy competition which raised £360. The winner was a gentlemen called Nick (on left of the picture). He gladly donated it back so it was auctioned off and it raised for a further £140, thanks to Tony Carver from AC Auto Locksmiths. The raffle raised over £400, there was bingo and entertainment.
Tracy from the Yorkshire Air Ambulance gave a speech explaining what the charity does.
The club will be holding this charity night every year, so if you have anything to donate please contact The Holbeck.
