IMPROVING Ilkley Charitable Trust has launched a fundraising appeal to transform a third flowerbed in Station Road, Ilkley.

Project benefactor Roger Yaxley said: “We would like to thank the residents of Ilkley that have generously donated and enabled us to transform the first two flowerbeds. The third bed is the largest and therefore requires extra funds. We are near to fully financing it, however, we need an additional £6,000 to ensure its build and planting. If this is of interest and you feel you would like contribute, there are collection boxes at La Stazione or the Post Office.”

You can also donate via PayPal: Improving Ilkley Reg charity 1193192 or Text FLOWERBEDS to 70085 to donate £5 or Text IMPROVINGILKLEY to 70085 to donate £10.

Donations have also been made by Ilkley Council, Ilkley BID, Bradford Council, H Eaton & Sons Funeral Directors, Ilkley Rotary clubs and Roger Yaxley.
