MANORLANDS is toasting a £300 donation.

The Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice received the boost after a fundraising day at a Bradford city centre pub.

Ginger Goose customer Rose Bellwood organised the event, which also coined-in cash for Guide Dogs.

Visually-impaired Rose has been a supporter of Guide Dogs for many years – she has her own guide dog, Ian.

But this time she decided to also help Manorlands after hearing of its work at the hospice and in the community.

Manorlands fundraiser Harriet Wood said: “Rose is an amazing lady with such a kind heart.

“Despite her disability, she doesn’t let anything get in the way of her goals and aspirations.

“We are fortunate to have been able to benefit from her determination and enthusiasm to raise funds and we look forward to working with Rose and Ian in the future.”

Manorlands supports patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families, across an area covering Craven, Airedale and Wharfedale as well as parts of Bradford.

All services are free to patients and their loved ones, but it costs £9,000 a day to keep the hospice doors open.

Only a small part of the cost is covered by statutory funds. Most of the funds have to be raised through voluntary donations.
