Youngsters from a Keighley school were among hundreds of children from across the region treated to a day of festive season fun.

They gathered at Pudsey Civic Hall for a charity Christmas party staged by the group Variety.

Variety has been supporting sick, disabled or disadvantaged children and young people across the UK for more than 50 years.

Half-a-dozen children from Beechcliffe School joined in the festivities, which included a lunch, magic show, balloon modelling and face painting, as well as a visit from Father Christmas carrying a sack-full of presents.

Variety Yorkshire committee chairman Ian Leach said: “The Christ-mas parties are one of the highlights in our calendar, and seeing the enjoyment the children get makes all the hard work worthwhile.”
