The fundraising campaign to send a sick baby girl to America for treatment is gathering pace.

A coffee morning and an Easter fun day raised a total of more than £1,000 in aid of one-year-old Nicole Vendettuoli.

The tot, of Oakworth, suffers from cerebral palsy. Money raised will help pay for a life-changing operation.

Nicole’s mum, Candice, said a big thank you to Farish House in Keighley, where £284 was raised with a coffee morning.

The Globe pub in Keighley raised £780 with its Easter fun day, which included an egg hunt, raffle, tombola and karaoke.

Candice said: “The event was put together in ten days – thank you to Heather and Julie.”

Nicole’s fund will be further boosted by a champagne afternoon tea at the Old Registry in Haworth on Saturday.

Tickets for the fundraiser, hosted by hotel owners Peter and Leanne Quinn, are £20 and must be bought in advance. The price includes champagne on arrival, finger sandwiches, mini tartlets, savouries, sweet treats and cakes. There will also be a raffle. Call (01535) 646503.

There will also be a football tournament at Marley Activities and Coaching Centre, complete with attractions such as face painting and a bouncy castle. Tickets, priced £2, can be bought on the day.
