Actress and Age UK Ambassador Lynda Bellingham took time out from her recent role as the Fairy Godmother in Bradford Alhambra’s Cinderella pantomime to accept a donation to the charity from Leeds Building Society.

The donation of more than £19,000 will go towards helping older people throughout the winter.

Lynda has a long standing relationship with Age UK and has worked on campaigns such as the charity’s winter appeal Spread the Warmth.
