  • Ilkley Carnival has made us the sole beneficiary of this year’s Ilkley Carnival, donating £8,600 (news article)
  • Ilkley Parish Council has granted  £7000 for the javelin area
  • A Member Loan Scheme will be launched later
  • Ilkley Aquathlon 2017 raised over £1350
  • Various funding opportunities are being investigated eg Ilkley Round Table
  • We will look at ‘Crowdfunding’ to kickstart the project in the community
  • Further fundraising efforts such as ‘Buy a metre’ of the Track, ‘easyfundraising’, etc.

Help raise funds whenever you shop online

One way you can help us raise funds, without it costing you anything, is to make your online purchases via an online website called Easyfundraising.

There are nearly 3,000 retailers including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline, holiday companies, and Sainsbury’s, who will donate a percentage of the amount you spend to Ilkley Harriers.  This is ring-fenced for the CATF.

It’s really simple, and doesn’t cost you anything.

All you have to do is:
1. Go to
2. Sign up for free
3. Get shopping – your donations will be collected by easyfundraising and automatically sent to the Ilkley Harriers. It couldn’t be easier!

There are no catches or hidden charges.
