A SERVICE to remember people killed and injured on our roads will be held this weekend.

Last year, 66 people died and more than 5,000 were injured on West Yorkshire's roads.

Now, charities SCARD (Support and Care After Road Death and Injury) and CADD (Campaign Against Drinking and Driving) will be holding the Oakleaf Remembrance Service at Leeds Minster at 3pm on Sunday. 

A spokesperson from SCARD said: "All are invited to attend, but especially those who have been injured or have lost loved ones on the roads.

"Many people bereaved and injured on the roads attend the service, which focuses on personal experiences, observations and readings from the victims' families.

"Families are encouraged to bring photos of their loved ones which are displayed. 

"The bereaved have the opportunity to write their loved ones' name on an oak leaf which are read out during the service."

To have an oak leaf completed, ring SCARD on 01924 562252 or email info@scard.org.uk. Alternatively, you can contact Leeds Minster. 

If you are planning to attend the service, there will be oak leaves available at the church for you to fill in yourself when you arrive.
