A GUISELEY woman’s Christmas Eve run has raised hundreds of pounds for local arts.

Eleanor Thomson ran to venues across Guiseley, Yeadon and Rawdon on December 24 to visit every window that was featured in the Great Big Guiseley Advent Calendar challenge.

Her efforts have raised more than £800 - which works out at more than £100 per mile in terms of sponsorship - in support of Codswallop CIC and Guiseley Theatre.

Community arts groups and theatres across the country have suffered badly throughout 2020 from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic so Eleanor organised the run to lend local groups a helping hand.
