2016 Carnival Details



Otley Carnival Awarded 
Skipton Building Society Grassroots Giving

Otley Carnival Committee would like to thank everyone who voted for us to become a Skipton Building Society Grassroots Giving beneficiary for 2015.  We were one of the 70 groups selected from a shortlist of 1,000, which must have been a tough task!  This will help support our 2016 beneficiaries which are Yorkshire Cancer Research, Behind Closed Doors and Wheatfields Hospice. (A copy of the letter is attached)Once again thanks for all those who supported us and their continued support for the Carnival we enter our 33rd year. 

Skipton Building Society launched its award-winning Grassroots Giving programme in 2013 to help celebrate its 160th anniversary. That year they gave away 160 pots of 500 to deserving community-based organisations across the UK. In 2014 they went one better by giving away 161 pots to the winning groups. The winners were chosen by a public vote which attracted almost 28,000 votes! A list of the winning groups can be found on their website.

Skipton Building Society has once again run Grassroots Giving in 2015 - and this time 162 groups around the country will win pots of 500 to go towards the fantastic work they do within their local communities. C:\Users\Nigel\Desktop\skipton bs certificate004.jpg
