A SECOND annual jigsaw festival proved a huge success.

The event raised more than £6,000 for Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice Manorlands.

Visitors to the festival, at Woodbank Garden Centre & Nurseries in Harden, were able to choose from thousands of puzzles.

"Last year’s event was such a success it was wonderful to see it return – and double the amount of money was raised," says Manorlands community fundraiser, Harriet Wood.

"There were more than 1.5 million jigsaw puzzle pieces at the festival, which is incredible!

"Thank you to everyone who donated or bought a puzzle. Your support means we can continue to be there for people who need us the most."

The event was organised by the hospice's Wilsden fundraising group.

Lynne Pengelly, for the group, says: "It's such a pleasure to be involved with this event, and we are absolutely thrilled with the funds raised for our local hospice.

"A huge 'thank you' must go to everyone at Woodbank for their ongoing support and to everybody who was able to attend. We'll look forward to seeing you next year – on Sunday, January 26!"
