Kildwick scarecrow festival to boost Manorlands and Yorkshire Air Ambulance
2:59pm Monday 14th July 2014 in News
KILDWICK Scarecrow Festival takes place next month.
And two charities, Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice Manorlands and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, will share in the proceeds.
Organisers of the August 15-17 event are urging people to get involved by making scarecrows for display during the weekend.
Winners will be selected in two categories, public and judges' choice.
There will also be a children's competition to spot mini scarecrows, and a bouncy castle.
Manorlands-based Sue Ryder regional fundraiser, Andrew Wood, said he was delighted the hospice had been chosen as a beneficiary.
“Scarecrow festivals are a great way to bring a village together and we hope Manorlands supporters in the area will really get behind it," he added.
