A KEIGHLEY businesswoman has organised a series of children's Christmas discos this month.

And the free events – at the Sue Belcher Centre, in Bracken Bank – were so successful, she hopes to find funding to continue them after the new year.

Laura Kelly – owner of Fate & Fings Designs clothes shop – ran four discos, each attended by up to 30 children.

The youngsters enjoyed music, games, food and drinks, and there was a visit from Santa at the final session.

"I’ve always given to local charities but this year I wanted to do something more direct," said Laura, who lives at Bracken Bank.

"Children have had an especially hard year because of Covid and home schooling and I came-up with the idea of a 'VIP' disco – VIP because children are very important people!

"I’d like to thank the volunteers who gave-up their time to help, as well as the committee which runs the Sue Belcher Centre."

Committee member, David Weston, said: "We're always willing to try to help facilitate community ventures."

Anyone interested in offering sponsorship or fundraising help to continue the discos is asked to contact Laura via Facebook or at Fate & Fings Designs.
