MANORLANDS has received a 'monster' donation from Keighley market hall.

A range of fundraising activities – including face painting, hook a duck, a name-the-teddy contest and ring-a-bottle – was held over 11 days in August.

The venture was organised by Emma Kinsey, who was working at her grandmother's stall during a summer break from her college hairdressing course.

Over £760 was raised.

“I’m delighted we managed to raise so much for such a good cause," she said.

"We owe a huge thank you to the other stall holders and of course to the market hall customers, who were so generous."

She was helped with the initiative by her boyfriend Daniel Green, who dressed as a honey monster to entertain children while collecting.

Sue Ryder fundraiser Andrew Wood, who is based at the Oxenhope hospice, received the donation.

He said: "Emma and her team have done us proud with their fundraising. She has such drive and enthusiasm that she will succeed in whatever projects she takes on.

"It is a pleasure and a real asset to Manorlands that we have young people like Emma and Daniel prepared to give up so much time to support the care we provide.”
