Haworth hoteliers are raising money to help send a sick baby girl to America.

Peter and Leanne Quinn have joined the fund-raising campaign for 17-month-old Nicole Vendettuoli.

The pair will hold a champagne afternoon at the Old Registry in Main Street on May 10 to help pay for a life-changing operation for Nicole.

Bradford-born pop star Gareth Gates is among those supporting efforts to raise £70,000 for the Oakworth baby.

Nicole, daughter of Tom and Candice Vendettuoli, of Harewood Crescent, was born three months premature and suffered a brain haemorrhage, which led to cerebral palsy.

Peter and Leanne said there are limited tickets for the champagne afternoon, which have to be bought before the event.

Tickets cost £20, which includes champagne on arrival, finger sandwiches, mini tartlets, savouries, sweet treats and cakes.

Leanne said: “There will, of course, be unlimited tea and coffee. We are also holding a raffle with many great prizes.”

Peter and Leanne held a fundraising event earlier this year for Keighley teenager Amy Knowles, who has a rare medical condition and raises money for research at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
