A KEIGHLEY funeral director is again remembering those it has cared for during the year.

David Gallagher Funeral Directors has erected a Christmas tree, at its Airedale House premises in Skipton Road, adorned with white lights each representing a person it has looked after.

And in their memory the firm has donated £1,000 to its chosen charity for the year, Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice Manorlands.

Adele Gallagher, for the company, paid tribute to the hospice and spoke of how highly-valued its services were.

She added: "Our donation will help with an item on the hospice’s wishlist – a syringe driver. This is a device which allows patients to manage their pain by turning up and down the rate at which medication is added to their bloodstream."

Andrew Wood, Sue Ryder community fundraising manager at Manorlands, voiced his thanks.

"At the hospice we have a great respect for the work of David Gallagher Funeral Directors and are delighted to be benefitting from this large sum as their charity of the year," he added.

"It is only because of generous businesses such as these that we can continue to provide more care to more people when they really need it."
