A PLAQUE has been unveiled in memory of a "remarkable and inspirational" Keighley community stalwart.

Christine Colhoun – who died last year, just days before her 81st birthday – set up Keighley Volunteer Bureau and founded the award-winning drug and alcohol agency, Project 6.

Guests at the plaque unveiling, at what is now Action Point, included town mayor Councillor Gulfraz Hussain and chair of trustees Gina Thompson.

Diane Dale, Action Point chief executive officer, says: "Christine was a remarkable and inspirational woman.

"Not only did she establish Keighley Volunteer Bureau and Project 6, but also the Double Six alcohol-free pub and numerous projects supporting children and young people.

"In addition to her voluntary sector work, Christine cared for her own family which continued to grow, as she not only cared for her biological children and grandchildren but also welcomed numerous foster children into her home.

"She had a huge impact on the lives of hundreds of people.

"Christine moved away following retirement, but in 2017 returned to Keighley and again supported the work of Action Point when she joined the trustees.

"Christine has left a legacy that will benefit the lives of people in our community for years to come."
