ANDY Sharpe, a committed local fundraiser and Ilkley resident, has chosen to fundraise for Outside the Box in his latest efforts.

Andy has been fundraising since 2012 raising over £70,000 for many local charities.

He has now selected to support Outside the Box with a target of £600 for his three events, which include the Leeds and Ilkley half marathon events and the Staffordshire Iron-Man.

“It was a pleasure to meet the team at Outside the Box and learn about the superb range of activities which are provided,” said Andy. “The staff, members and volunteers were incredibly welcoming and it’s a pleasure to select such a brilliant charity for three of my fundraising events.”

Outside the Box, run by local charity Ilkley Community Enterprise Ltd, is a community café in Ilkley, which supports adults and young people with a learning disability. Andy’s efforts can be sponsored at
