The Harrogate Spa Town Ukes are delighted to be adding their support in helping to resolve the funding crisis facing its charity partner.

Since the group was founded nine years ago, the Ukes have grown in numbers and have devoted all the collections and donations made at their regular concerts and private events to Saint Michael's.

From small beginnings, the Ukes have managed to raise over £4,000 per year for the last three years running.
