Soggy but Successful Collection Day in Ilkley

It was a very rainy day on Saturday 2nd October for the annual Ikley Wharfedale Rotary Club annual recycling day but that didn't lead to a diappointing turn out. 

The support from the public was as fantastic as ever and a total of 124 bikes were collected for MCF to refurbish in our workshops. There was also a terrific number of tools, glasses, sewing machines and trainers which were all collected on the day to be passed on to different organisations to be recycled and reused. 

MCF would like to thank all the members of the public who donated items on the day and our most sincere thanks to the members of Ilkley Wharfedale Rotary Club for their ongoing support. 

We would also like to thank our brilliant volunteers Miles and Glenn who stepped in to drive the van and transport all of the bikes from Ilkley on the day - it was a long day with a lot of roadworks and we simply wouldn't have been able to manage without them.
