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.
