Silsden Allstars majorettes have given a £2,000 boost to Manorlands hospice in Oxenhope.

The cash was raised when the troupe’s new fundraising committee staged its first event, a ladies’ day race night at the Sunny Bank Social Club in Silsden.

About 130 people attended the event, which also featured waiter service, a hamper raffle and an auction.

In total £4,000 was raised, with the proceeds being split between the Allstars and the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice.

Manorlands-based Sue Ryder regional fundraiser, Andrew Wood, received a cheque and paid tribute to the group.

“I would like to thank the group for its hard work which made its first event such a success,” he said.

The Allstars thanked everyone who attended, making special mention of Skipton Hand Car Wash and Carol O’Driscol at the venue for their support.

The troupe, which meets at Silsden Town Hall, can be contacted via its Facebook page.
