A STEETON firm has raised nearly £85,000 for Manorlands since it began supporting the hospice six years ago.

And Acorn Stairlifts has set its sights on smashing through the six-figure barrier this year.

The company has just handed over its latest donation, of £15,913, raised through activities during 2017.

Events included a 25th-anniversary ball, Tough Mudder, dress-down days and participation in the Keighley BigK 10K and Manorlands PaintRush.

Director Nick Wilson boosted the total by cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats, coining-in £3,377 through sponsorship.

Rachel Shaw, for the company, said: "Manorlands is a cause that's very important to us at Acorn Stairlifts and we are delighted to have raised another large amount last year.

"We have some big plans for the coming year and have our sights firmly set on breaking through that £100,000 mark."

Andrew Wood, community fundraising manager at the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice, thanked all those involved in the activities.

"This is a massive donation and will help us to continue caring for local people and their families when they need it most – both at the hospice and within their own homes," he added.
