December 20, 2011 Kirkless Council
Kirklees Markets are delighted to have provided free stalls on over 40 market days to help raise awareness of valuable campaigns such as Breast Feeding Awareness, Carers Rights Day, Bowel Cancer Awareness and Crime Prevention.
In addition they have supported charitable organisations in 2011 providing over 40 market stalls throughout the year at half-price to help with fund-raising activities for groups such as Guide Dogs for the Blind, Leukaemia research and the National Autistic Society, as well as local charities such as the Forget-me-not Trust, Dewsbury Children’s Centre and many more local churches and schools.
The most recent campaign is the Junior Chamber Secret Santa campaign which Queensgate Market traders in Huddersfield have worked in partnership with the Pulse Radio to collect presents for needy children at Christmas. The Secret Santa appeal has been running for more than 20 years and this year hundreds of presents have been donated at Queensgate market for needy children across West Yorkshire.
Cllr Peter McBride, Kirklees Joint Cabinet Member for Investment, said: “Having a stall at a local market is an excellent way to promote campaigns and raise funds for worthy causes. Local markets are great social spaces and people from all across Kirklees use markets, from the large markets of Huddersfield and Dewsbury, to the smaller local markets and farmers markets – they are ideal avenues to reach out to local people.”
Any registered charity can apply for a half-price stall and any group wanting to raise awareness of campaigns in the public interest can have a stall free of charge. Stalls must be booked in advance – contact 01484 223730 or email email@example.com for more information.
