Brighouse Ladies Luncheon Club has marked 60 years of fundraising for the NSPCC - a feat described by one charity trustee as 'extraordinary support'.

The ladies had afternoon tea at Crow Nest Golf Club alongside special guest, Calder Valley MP Craig Whittaker.

Elizabeth Brash, the current vice chair of the NSPCC’s Board of Trustees and the divisional trustee for Yorkshire, the Humber and North East, said she feels 'humbled' by their work.

She said: “I am always astounded at the level of commitment and passion our supporters have for the work of the NSPCC. For sixty years the ladies of Brighouse, over generations, have wanted to be there for children and I so wanted to pay tribute for such extraordinary support.”

It was also a time for the club to say goodbye to its chair, Annabelle Davis, who has supported the charity for 25 years.

She said: “I am so proud to have been a part of this incredible club, coming together for such a long time. We have fostered really special relationships that we feel like a family. The best thing about families is that we look after each other and so we feel part of the NSPCC family - helping vulnerable children whatever their plight is.”
