Back in July we published an article announcing that in 2017 our event had raised just over £6,000 and that this is split between the Friends of Kirkbymoorside CP School and the Gillamoor CE (VP) Primary School.
We’re pleased to be able to pass on an update from the Gillamoor PTA as to where the money they received has been spent.
Primarily the 2017 funds have contributed towards funding the transportation costs the for weekly school swimming lessons. Additionally there was a contribution to the after school sports club as well as some gym equipment. Some of the funds have also contributed to the transport for the whole school trip to Beamish later this year.
The PTA are especially grateful of the amazing amount the 10K event raised this year. Gillamoor is a small village school and this year we have a lower number of pupils. In turn this means fewer contributions from parents and less school funding, this is where the PTA try to step in and provide the difference.
The money that Gillamoor receive from the Kirkbymoorside 10K is especially important to us as we find in increasingly difficult to keep up. We would like to pass on our grateful thanks to everyone who entered the events and helped make it such a success.
