A SEARCH has been launched for Santas and elves!

Manorlands fundraisers are seeking volunteers to fill the roles and help with other activities in the run-up to Christmas.

The Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice has several events planned.

There will be a Santa's grotto in Keighley's Airedale Shopping Centre every weekend from November 23 until December 6, and on December 22, 23 and 24.

And a charity gift-wrapping service starts in the centre on December 4.

New Coley Nurseries at Denholme will have a grotto in aid of Manorlands every weekend next month, from 10am to 4pm.

Also, the hospice will share in the proceeds of a Clayton Dickensian Market on December 6.

"We need volunteers to help with all these activities," said Manorlands fundraiser Matthew Palmer.

"If anyone can give up some time to help, please get in touch."
