The Great Yorkshire Show, England’s biggest agricultural show, a 3 day annual event attracting all kinds of trade exhibitors, was held Tuesday 9th - Thursday 11th July.
One of the exhibitors was long time Yorkshire member and avid supporter Nigel Chippindale of Chippindale Plant Limited. Having contacted the club with the news that he had had a carpenter create a wooden 'dumper truck' for children to play on, he asked if there was something available to collect donations, should people wish to put in. The club provided their bespoke ‘Lighthouse’ perfect for such an occasion
Alan Wright , Club Chairman & Anika Mather the Secretary attended the show on the Thursday and saw the dumper created quite a stir with all the children!
The contents of the lighthouse collection amounted to £126.57 and Nigel of Chippindales very kindly matched the amount, meaning the Lighthouse charity benefited from a lovely donation of £253.14.
Thank you to Chippendale Plant, It was such a nice quirky idea to raise a bit of money in a fun way and hopefully awareness too!
