Charities benefit from fundraising council chairman

[Friday 26 May 2006]

Friends of the Friarage


RAF Leeming


Aroma Restaurant

TWO charities based in Hambleton have benefited this week as the former chairman of the District Council, Peter Brown, presented them with cheques.

Almost £2,300 went to the Friends of the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton and another £1,000 went to the RAF Benevolent Fund.

The Friends of the Friarage are tireless fundraisers on behalf of the hospital, raising money for equipment. The RAF has a long history in Hambleton with its base at Leeming and the Benevolent Fund works to provide the extended Royal Air Force Family with support as a consequence of poverty, sickness, disability, accident, infirmity or other adversity.

The cash was raised during his year of office - which he completed earlier this month - through his civic dinner and a charity concert.

Several donations were also made including £300 from the Aroma Restaurant in Northallerton which staged a special Sunday opening to raise funds.

The three pictures (from top) show Councillor Brown with Brian Thompson, Chairman of the Friends of the Friarage Hospital; Wing Commander Ian Vallely of RAF Leeming; and staff of the Aroma Restaurant in Northallerton.
