MANORLANDS has received a £700 boost from Keighley Gala.

The cash was raised at the annual extravaganza, held in June.

Organisers hailed the event as a sizzling success.

Andrew Jackson, who was recently re-elected as gala chairman, has handed over a cheque to the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice.

"It is a pleasure and privilege to help Manorlands in any way with its fundraising efforts and we look forward to working with them again in the future," he said.

The cheque was received by Manorlands-based Sue Ryder fundraiser, Andrew Wood.

He told us: "The Keighley Gala committee is very generous in supporting us again. This donation will make a big difference to our care for seriously ill people and their families in the Keighley area."

Next year’s Keighley Gala is planned for Sunday, June 7.
