ILKLEY and District Good Neighbours is delighted to have received £2,800 from the Co-op Community Fund which will go towards the Over 90s Party in September 2018.

Adrienne Heavisides, trustee of IDGN and organiser of the Over 90s Party, said: “Every year we organise a party for people in the Ilkley district who have reached the age of 90. Anyone who is living in a care home is invited and we also encourage all those people of this age living independently to come along and enjoy free afternoon tea and entertainment. The money we have received from the Co-op Community Fund will ensure that this party will continue for at least another two years and we are extremely grateful.”

Members of the Co-op donate one per cent of what they spend on selected own-brand products and services which, together with money from shopping bag sales, helps to fund local projects like ours. Since September 2016 the Co-op has raised more than £20million for community projects.”
