What is “Pat’s Party”?

Pat’s Party is a community fundraising group established 21 years ago in response to a humanitarian crisis that was unfolding.

It was the brainchild Pat Evans who wanted to make a difference.

Sadly Pat passed away before the second party, which her friends promised they would continue as part of her legacy.

Who does Pat’s Party support?

Pat’s Party has raised £162,000 predominantly for Save the Children and mainly through our annual summer musical festival held in a committee member’s garden in Ben Rhydding. Pat's Party also supports the local scout group and a donation of £5,000 was given to build and support a school in The Gambia. In 2023 we also donated £4,800 to the foodbanks in Bradford and Keighley.

Who else has Pat’s Party supported?

In 2022 committee members raised £22,000 for a road trip to Poland to deliver humanitarian aid to Ukrainian refugees. We also transported refugee families from the Ukraine / Poland border to safety, and to their host families in Yorkshire.

The summer music festival

There are approx. 500 party goers from Ben Rhydding and Ilkley. Several bands perform during the afternoon. There’s children’s entertainment, a zipwire, raffle, beer, drink, and food tents. It is always well attended and there is always music, laughter and dancing!
