The committee would like to thank Fort Vale Engineering, Watson Ramsbottom Solicitors and the Paper Cup Company for their generous sponsorship of the event.

In addition, numerous organisations and individuals provided much appreciated auction items, which contributed £600 to the total amount raised while the raffle prizes contributed more than £1,000.

The committee expressed its thanks as always to all its members for their generous support and for the continued support of local businesses as well as Ribble Valley residents.
