FUNDRAISING has entered a new chapter at a Cross Hills building society.

Staff at the Skipton Building Society branch in Main Street coined-in £475 for charity through a book stall.

The money has been donated to Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice, Manorlands.

Denise Wortley and Sharon Hardaker, from the branch, handed over a cheque and thanked customers for supporting the initiative.

Skipton Building Society match-funded the amount raised.

Manorlands-based Sue Ryder fundraiser, Andrew Wood, paid tribute to the branch team for its backing.

He added: “We also owe Skipton Building Society a big ‘thank you’ for match-funding the amount. The money is vital so we can continue to be there when it matters for local people.”
