A JIGSAW festival pieced together nearly £3,000 for Manorlands hospice.

More than 600 jigsaws were on display and available to buy at the event, at Woodbank Garden Centre & Nurseries in Harden.

A team of volunteers had assembled the puzzles in the months leading up to the festival.

Event organiser, Harriet Wood, said: "I really got into jigsaws during lockdown and I learned there was a huge community of other enthusiasts out there. I knew there was probably some scope to raise money for our local hospice, so decided to set up the festival. The response was just phenomenal."

The festival raised £2,974 for the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice, which provides palliative care to people living with life-limiting conditions across Airedale, Wharfedale, Bradford and Craven, as well as supporting their families and loved ones.

Thanks were expressed to Woodbank for hosting the event and to the volunteers who helped out.
