Will YOU be our primary beneficiary this year?!

We’re looking for local groups and organisations to apply to be our 2023 primary beneficiary.

One local group has the chance to receive 50% of the profits from this year’s event with the remaining 50% distributed amongst other local good causes who provide volunteers to help put on this event.

Previous primary beneficiaries have received as much as £10,000 to help improve lives within the local community.

The Friends Of Ilkley Moor were chosen as last year’s primary beneficiary and received 50% of the profits.  The funds went towards projects for peatland restoration.
