A Royal thank you to Stokesley and District Community Care Association
A Stokesley based charity has been named as one of just forty three recipients of a prestigious, county wide community initiative award.
The Duke of York’s Community Initiative is presented annually to a small number of Yorkshire based organisations that having been subjected to rigorous and robust scrutiny are deemed: “of real value to the community, well run and an inspiration to others.”
Stokesley and District Community Care Association was founded in 1988 to help support elderly and disabled residents by providing a number of services including transport, exercise classes, a lunch club, craft club and community visiting services.
Recently the Initiative, which was founded by His Royal Highness The Duke of York in 1998, held its annual awards ceremony at the Magna Science Adventure Centre, Rotherham during which His Royal Highness personally presented recipients of the 2014 awards with their citations.

On Friday 19th December, the CCA is once again hiring the Town hall (main downstairs room) from 9am to 3pm (usually we have this room 12-3pm). As well as our usual refreshments we are looking at a Tombola and Cake stall to help significantly increase our fundraising potential.
As last year Barclays Bank are giving us “match funding” for anything we raise on the day (up to a maximum of £1000)
We are asking Volunteers to help cover the Tombola and cake stall as well as people to actually bake cakes plus if you have anything suitable for Tombola prizes we will be grateful…..drop them into the office any time.
We are also intending to hire the smaller downstairs room for the morning session, with both our own Craft Club and Stokesley Fair trade having stalls.
We hope you will be able to support this event either as a Volunteer or importantly to spend some of your money…..it’s for a good cause !
