Well done everyone! I’m sure you’ll be pleased to learn that Sylvia our club treasurer has done the sums and together we raised a grand total of £354 for the Harrogate District Food Bank at our recent quiz night. The cheque has been handed over and we received a lovely note of thanks.
More good news too! Martin and Sarah our club captains have worked tirelessly and now have the completed list of club championship races for 2020. As I’m sure you will appreciate this is an onerous task and its impossible to please everyone but believe me they have listened to you and tried.
These will be available to view on the club website very soon.
