parcel delivery 2016 

 

The annual Good Neighbours festive parcels distribution, to those who are likely to be alone over the holiday period, took place in the run up to Christmas. A veritable army of volunteers, drawn from the Rotary Clubs of Ilkley and Ilkley Wharfedale, ably assisted by KIVCA volunteers assembled in the Masonic Hall to pack and wrap the festive gifts in record time.

Students from Ilkley Grammar school joined the distribution teams to visit and chat with the recipients.

The Christmas parcels project is supported, financially, by a number of organisations including Ilkley Round Table, Christopher Binns and numerous others, without whose help the project could not take place annually.

 

Our many thanks from the recipients demonstrate the

value of the scheme.  Some of these were:

 

"Thank you very much for the lovely parcel” EL

 

“Lovely to know that someone is thinking about me” DH

 

“It is one of the nicest things that has ever happened to me” JD

 

If you know anyone who will be alone this Christmas,

please let us know closer to the time.
