Marie Curie's 'Great Daffodil Walk' took place today, raising just over £2,900 for charity.

The six-mile walk, organised by the Bradford Hospice Fundraising Group, began in Myrtle Park, Bingley, and went through the St Ives Estate to raise funds for the Bradford hospice.

Just under 100 people took part.

Dave Harvey, community fundraiser for Marie Curie, said: "It's gone very well.

"We've raised just over £2,900, so we are very pleased with the result.

"And obviously that's all down to the kind support of people who took part today."

Mr Harvey thanked the Mortgage Advice Bureau in Bingley which helped with first aid cover and Tarquin's Tearoom in Myrtle Park, where the walkers registered.

He also thanked everyone who took part, for helping to raise much-needed funds for the hospice. 

The money raised will pay for 145 hours of nurses' time at the hospice, which equates to 18 days of care. 

It costs £6,144 a day to run the Bradford Marie Curie Hospice and it is currently undergoing £1.5 million redevelopment to improve the lives of terminally ill people and their families.

It will include a new state-of-the-art Outpatient Unit and an extended Day Therapy Unit.
