Stokesley currently benefits from flood protection provided by the Stokesley Flood Diversion Channel and a number of flood embankments along the River Leven. The existing defences have been in place for a number of years and the Environment Agency now need to investigate how to continue to protect the community long into the future.

Another busy summer for us –
We attended the Great Ayton Summer Fete In June.
We invited people to find a luxury hamper, donated by Great Ayton Coop, on our mystery map and also sold ‘mix-up sweet bags’ – which were as popular as ever!
We made £74 profit which goes straight into the charity funds.
We also attended the Classic Car Show in June in Stokesley.
This time we had a very varied tombola – the weather was wet to start but improved as the day went on.
Happily we made £374.80 on the day! Which was rounded up to £450 by Rotary – many thanks for their brilliant support.
Whilst we need to fundraise, this is also an ideal opportunity for us to let people know about the services we can provide and also an opportunity to recruit more volunteers – who are always welcome!

We now have the confirmed total of the Marie Curie street collection in Stokesley on 23rd March……….£567.26
Thank you to everyone who donated.
Each year we support the Marie Curie charity by providing them with a base for their Stokesley collection day – All the volunteers call in to our offices to collect their tins/tabards and daffodils.
This year the collection took place on Friday 23rd March – a total of £650 was raised
This is one of the Marie Curie volunteers – Ann
A big Thank you to the Springfield Co-op for raising £300 for the Stokesley & District Community Care Day Centre.
The Day Centre was charity of the month for November!
As you may know Stokesley CCA took over the running of the Day Centre after The Alzheimer’s Society decided to close it – the £300 will help to keep the centre running and will buy new equipment which is needed.
Thank you to everyone who supported us with our fundraiser by baking cakes, donating tombola prizes and giving your time!!
We have raised a fantastic £874.50
Thanks to Jim (picture above) who on behalf of Barclays Bank will be able to double a portion of the total …..
also pictured is a young volunteer Becky, and Tessa & Katherine from the ‘Living Well’ team, North Yorkshire County Council who donated a day of volunteering to us – 🙂
Thank you to everyone who came along and helped us raise this fantastic amount.
A big Thank You to Stokesley Coop for making us one of their chosen charities over the last 6 months – they raised a fantastic £5712.35 for our Lunch Club – to help us keep it running into the future.
