FUNDS RAISED

Whilst the events organised in Kirkby were more about making the most of the occasion and
bringing the community together, rather than just raising money, we wanted to let you know where the profits have been allocated. 

Each venue kept the sums raised by the activities there towards its own funds:

Mechanics Institute:                         £350

Chapel:                                            £50

Church:                                            £130 (£180 over the three days of their flower festival)

Highside Playing Fields:                  £170

Pre-School also raised about £400 from the pop-up Prosecco, Face-painting and the Chocolate tombola.

The additional funds raised jointly are itemised within the final accounts with £59.20 donated to each of the above organisations plus the School.TOUR DE YORKSHIRE ACCOUNTS.pdf
