Fiona has now had her first fundraising event which was a quiz night at Bramham Village Hall. The evening was a great success with the 91 contestants raising just over £1000 for the British Heart Foundation. Fiona would like to thank everyone who took part and also all of the people who helped run and make it such a succesful event.
Fiona’s next fundraising event is a 70 mile bike ride from Bramham to Bridlington in June this year. Currently Fiona has only managed 17 miles so any donations to her JustGiving page would be a great motivator https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/fionacharris

The committee of Tockwith Show has invited the volunteers of Tockwith Festival to run the bar at this year’s show on Sunday, August 6.
The Festival team members – who have run their successful, family-friendly beer and music festival in the village for almost a decade – will serve up drinks to thirsty visitors throughout the day, including ales, ciders and Pimm’s. All the proceeds from the bar will then be added to their funds from the beer festival, which are distributed to organisations and projects across the Tockwith area.
Tockwith Festival trustee Adrian Ray said: “We’ve been keen to work with Tockwith Show for a number of years because our aims and theirs are so closely aligned.
“Both organisations aim to offer a great event for local people and visitors, and to support other groups in the Tockwith district too. What makes this partnership even better is that we’ll be selling beer from Rudgate Brewery, which is just half a mile from the Tockwith Show Field.”
Low food miles have been prioritised by the Tockwith Show committee for a number of years, with an emphasis on produce from the surrounding area. This includes numerous local businesses in the Farmer’s Market marquee, selling everything from pies and meats to home-made cakes and tea, and catering in the Members’ tent by Ainsty Farm Shop.
In the last few years, Tockwith Festival has given grants to organisations including Tockwith Scouts, Tockwith Players and Springbank Surgery, which was raising funds for a new mobile ultrasound scanner – a project to which Tockwith Show also made a contribution.
Sam Blacker, co-chairman of the Tockwith Show committee, said: “For a number of years, we’ve had commercial organisations running the bar for us.
“While they’ve always been local and provided a good service, the profits have gone back to the company. It’s great to have the team from the festival on board not only to run the bar for us, but also to keep that money close to home.
“Along with reducing food miles, one of our priorities is to keep prices low for our visitors. With low-cost pitches, all our food and drink providers – including the bar – are able to keep their prices down to make Tockwith Show a really affordable day out for all the family.”
Tockwith Show takes place on Sunday, August 6 on the show field at Cattal Moor Lane, Tockwith, YO26 7QH. Tickets at £10 per person are available on the gate – or buy online in advance for a 20 per cent saving at www.tockwithshow.org.uk. Under 16s go free.
