Youngsters hand over donation for Airedale Hospital ward
10:00am Monday 28th October 2013 in News
The selfless contribution of two girls paid off when the fun day they arranged generated £800 for an Airedale Hospital stroke ward.
Event organisers Ellie Dowse, ten, from Riddlesden, and Hannah Dowse, 12, from Denholme, raised the cash to support ward five at Airedale. Their great uncle was cared for in the ward for 12 weeks earlier this year.
Ellie’s brother Cameron, 12 and Hannah’s brother Josh, 15, also helped out during the fun day. The girls presented the proceeds to ward five staff this week.
Their grandmother, Ingrow resident Tina Dowse, said: “They put in such a lot of effort, they worked really hard.
The event in Broomhill, Keighley, included a bouncy castle, refreshments and a tombola.
