ILKLEY RFC have received £500 for cleaning and painting their home by a bank's initiative.

'NatWest RugbyForce' calls on volunteers to help get facilities in shape, to welcome back the community once play is able to resume.

Volunteers were out in their numbers at Stacks Field to do their bit, even MP Robbie Moore came down to do some painting alongside player Chuckie Ramsay.

With the opening date of the 2020/21 season passing last weekend, the Dalesmen will be hoping to return to the pitch sooner rather than later.
