A MUSIC event which supports Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice Manorlands is celebrating a milestone.

The Groovy Happening – which takes place upstairs at the Parkside Social Club, in Haworth – is marking its 10th birthday.

Since the event began, £41,000 has been coined-in.

"We would like to thank all the musicians and guests who have helped us reach this fantastic amount," said spokesperson Sue Burke.

Headlining at the latest Groovy Happening – on Saturday, March 5 – is popular locally-based band Last Orders. It will be playing rock 'n' roll, blues and country from artists such as Tom Petty and The Rolling Stones.

Up first will be songwriter Andy Whitehouse, who is making his second appearance at Groovy Happening.

And he'll be followed by Beep Beep Aargh! – comprising Johnny Lorrimer and resident DJ, Phil Hobson.

Doors open at 7.30pm.

Admission is £4, with payment by cash only.

All proceeds go to Manorlands, which supports patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families at the hospice and in the community – across an area covering Craven, Airedale and Wharfedale as well as parts of Bradford.

All services are free, but it costs £10,000 a day to keep the hospice doors open.
