Children from a Keighley nursery decorated Christmas trees at the Salvation Army’s headquarters.

Around eight pupils from Worth Valley Nursery visited the High Street church to decorate the three-foot-high trees.

The trees, which are each sponsored by local businesses, will be displayed around the building.

The trees help the Salvation Army raise hundreds of pounds each year towards its Christmas appeal.

Salvation Army spokesman Chris Bown said: “It was good fun. It makes the church look really nice.”

Proceeds from the appeal are used to support needy people in Keighley.

A collection by the Salvation Army in the town centre on Saturday raised £955. “It is a fantastic amount and we are grateful to everyone who contributed and to all the collectors for their help and support,” said Mrs Bown.
