We’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the generosity of the Trustees of the Whittuck Charity and the Dewsbury Guild of Help who have donated £100 to the Dewsbury and District League of Friends towards the costs of our Christmas Party.
Everybody at Howlands is grateful for their generosity and looking forward to the party.
Howlands members, volunteers, and staff invited friends and supporters to the centre to celebrate securing a Big Lottery win to refurbish the historical building it is based within.
Chairman Tom Ellis welcomed all who attended to the afternoon and introduced the architect’s team of Simon Cornell, Darren Bailey and Steve Voke to the members and volunteers.
Trustee June Salisbury and Cath Longley of Good Fundraising cut the celebration cakes and a Bucks Fizz toast was raised to cement the future success of the Howlands.
Kirklees Council representative Councillor Eric Firth attended the event and was delighted that the Howlands was building on its 60 years of experience and refurbishing the building that would go on to serve the people of Dewsbury for a further 20 to 30 years.
We very much enjoyed the whole afternoon; it’s a positive time for the Howlands.
Dawn’s BIG dance night was another successful event and an incredibly enjoyable evening.
A MASSIVE £391.00 was raised for The Howlands.
Thank you to all who supported and took part in the event – well done Dawn, thank you.
