SERVICE TO OUR COMMUNITY
Our fundraising efforts being channelled towards local charities
Serving our local community
We have recognised the need for voluntary organisations to work in coopertive ways to meet our mutual needs. As such we are delighted to be working with Mirfield Round Table to help with their Beer Festival and Bonfire. We are particularly engaged with Northorpe Hall Child and Family Trust. This is a charity supporting childrens mental and emotional health - they support hundreds of local children and their parents and we are delighted to be able to help them to deliver this most worthwhile service.
We organised a Technology Tournament for the local schools in which about 120 pupils from 12 schools participated.
One of the most fulfilling things we do each year is to take a group of educationally challenged pupils from Ravens Hall to Light Water Valley to join in with some 600 others for a great day out known as Kids Out.
We also join with other community organisations such as Round Table to help fund community projects led by others. As an example, St Aidens Church Mirfield held their annual dinner in February 2019 at Crossley Fields School, hosted by the St Vincent de Paul Society.
Finally, it isn't all about fundraising or carrying out direct service for others sometimes we merely participate in Mirfield events such as the Rememberence Day Parade where we join other local organisations to lay a wreath to honour and pay our personal respects to those who gave their lives to protect our freedom.
