Lucky Winner!

Congratulations to Lorna Bellamy of Clayton Heights, the lucky winner of our competition last month. Lorna and a guest won tickets to see The South in concert at the Bingley Arts Centre on 10th October, by correctly answering the question: “What was the name of The Beautiful South’s bestselling 1994 compilation album?” The correct answer was Carry On Up The Charts.

Marie Curie Cancer Care

We are in the process of setting up a new fundraising group in Bingley, Eldwick and Gilstead to help raise funds and awareness of the local Marie Curie Hospice, Bradford, and the home nursing service.

The Bingley Fundraising Group will be the local face of Marie Curie Cancer Care in Bingley, Eldwick and Gilstead. They will support our work by coordinating the Great Daffodil Appeal in the area, organising a Blooming Great Tea Party, looking after the collection tins as well as any other fundraising activities they enjoy. The fundraising group will meet every 4-6 weeks and will play a key role in making the most of all fundraising opportunities in the local area. Joining a fundraising group is a great opportunity for local people to join together and get involved in fun and rewarding fundraising activities while supporting the Marie Curie Hospice, Bradford, and our local Marie Curie Nurses.

We are holding a meeting on Wednesday 12th November at 6.30pm in The Glen, Gilstead Lane, Bingley, BD16 3LN. We would love as many people as possible to join us and find out more about joining the fundraising group.
