Local Bridge Club Donation

Harrogate Bridge Club Make Donation to Local Charity

A longstanding Bridge club in Harrogate has pledged its support to The Avalon Group by including them in their annual charitable giving initiative. On 28th June Susan Nobbs, a member of The Bridge Bunch presented Avalon Group CEO Larry Hollando with a cheque for £150.

The Bridge Bunch has been supporting community based charities for a number of years, and at their annual summer party at Rudding Park, the club chose The Avalon Group as a beneficiary due to the difference they make to the lives of people in Harrogate and the surrounding areas.

Avalon has been providing support since 1994, and currently helps over 700 people to live fulfilling lives; learning new life skills and growing their independence. Avalon also offers a pioneering Shared Lives scheme, where trained carers open their homes to offer a place to stay for vulnerable adults, and means they share in a safe, family life.

Upon handing the donation to the charity, Susan said “With over 100 members The Bridge Bunch is committed to giving back to the community we all love. It is our great pleasure to support the work of The Avalon Group, and to know that the money we have raised will help local people.”

Avalon Group CEO Larry Hollando said “We would like to thank The Bridge Bunch for recognising our charity in this way. It is this kind of generosity that enables us to provide improved services for people who need us.”
