A jumper sale in Keighley raised more than £700 for a church refurbishment fund.

Gabrielle Ramsden – a member of St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Cross Hills – staged the event to boost efforts to raise up to £40,000 for desperately-needed work on the building.

“Considering it was so close to Christmas and many people were probably preoccupied, I was delighted with how it went and thrilled to raise such a terrific amount – and I was impressed with the Central Hall venue,” she said.

“I may hold another sale in the spring.”

Sweaters were donated by Guiseley firm TB Ramsden Ltd, where Mrs Ramsden is design director.

Extensive work – from rewiring and heating installation to plastering – is required to bring the Aire Street church up to standard.
