The Ilkley Aquathlon is jointly organised each year by Ilkley Harriers and Ilkley Swimming Club. Ilkley Swimming Club have kindly donated their share of the profits this year to help fund the CATF. A total of £1353.36 includes £150 raised on the cake stall and a £50 donation from the coffee man. Thanks to all concerned.
Thank you to Ilkley Parish Council for granting £7000 specifically for the construction of the javelin area of the CATF.
The junior trail races at this year’s Ilkley Trail Race raised £178 for the CATF.
Thank you to everyone who took part and to Rachel, Bryan and all the volunteers for organising the event.
It’s now been announced that Ilkley Carnival 2017 raised a record £17,200 and as primary beneficiaries the Junior Ilkley Harriers will receive £8,600.
The club is delighted to be receiving such a generous donation which will fund the installation of the shot put area on the proposed CATF.
