Nearly £1500 of the money was raised with a sporting supper at Horbury WMC in November and the balance was made up of a donation from the former Wakefield RFC and from the funds raised at the Horbury Show.
Awards made to individual clubs are listed below and cover many different junior sports activities in the Wakefield, Horbury, Ossett and Netherton Areas.

President Mike Gill said:   " We are delighted that Wildcats Coach Richard Agar could come along and make the presentations to the junior clubs who successfully bid for a share of the money that he helped us to raise. As a club we have always supported junior sport and youth activities and this year we have been further inspired by the Olympic games. The £3000 we have handed over today is only part of our commitment this year because in addition we have distributed £1000 to Netherton Youth Club, £250 to the Horbury Breakthrough Project, £300 to the Ossett Brick House project, and funded two Outward Bound courses for 2 Ossett boys at a cost of £920, and a Youth Leadership Award for a Horbury boy at a cost of £450 "

In the past year the Rotary Club has also purchased Christmas Gifts for elderly people, presented Christmas hyacinths to blind and partially blind people, £3500 to Wakefield Hospice, £3500 to Forget Me Not Childrens Hospice, decorated the home of a lady with social difficulties, planted bedding plants in Carr Lodge Park, planted trees with the Woodland Trust in Thornes, organised and ran the Horbury show, and Navigation Walk, ran a Youth Speaks debating competition and a photographic competition for local schools, and collected donations for Marie Curie Daffodil Appeal. Other donations during the last year include: £500 to the Hebden Bridge Flood Appeal, £500 towards refurbishing a hospital in Tanzania, £500 to support a breakfast club at a school in Kenya, £1000 towards a toilet block and water supply to the same school in Kenya and £400 to fund a Disaster Relief box.
