Groovy music event boosts Manorlands care provision
11:00am Monday 24th December 2012 in Keighley
Manorlands has received a groovy fundraising boost.
The Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice has been given a £1,500 cheque, proceeds from Groovy Happening – a monthly live music event held at Parkside Social Club in Haworth.
Organiser Ann Wiles said: “We thoroughly enjoy staging this event, as it is a great evening for such a good cause. We also like to support and promote local musicians and encourage up- and-coming, inexperienced performers to play.”
The night usually features at least four acts, a raffle and homemade food.
Groovy Happening also presented a cheque to Manorlands in July for £2,000.
Manorlands fundraiser Leah Mitchell said: “We are extremely grateful for Groovy Happening’s wonderful contribution, which will help us to continue to provide care at the hospice and in the local community.”
