Like most charitable organisations, the funding we receive from North Yorkshire County Council and Harrogate Borough Council does not cover all our costs. We therefore rely on fundraising activities to pay for item such as:

  • Tools and equipment for our Help at Home service
  • To keep our vans on the road
  • To help pay for our programme of social events and outings
  • to cover volunteers’ expenses and for training
