Thank You to the Nidderdale Messiah!

by Jackie Snape

We were thrilled to be presented with a cheque for £4,000 from John Hodgson, Chair of the Nidderdale Messiah.  John came along to 34 Claro Road, our residential home, to present the cheque to Caroline, one of our service users, on 10 January.  This was the proceeds from the magnificent Nidderdale Messiah held in November 2011 at Birstwith church.

This event is held annually and every year they choose a different charity to benefit from the proceeds.  This year we were the lucky recipients, and we also got to hear the beautiful recital of Handels Messiah, which was breathtaking.  For more information on the Nidderdale Messiah go to

The money received will go towards equipping our holiday lodge, the build of which is almost complete.
