AN impressive £1,788.29 was raised at a festive fundraising bash in Colne.

Held at Colne Golf Club, the annual Christmas Cracker event was organised by the Colne and Nelson Fundraising Group for Pendleside Hospice.

There were plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy, including a raffle, a craft stall and a “Guess the weight of the cake” competition.

The committee would like to thank all the local businesses who helped with the event, and who donated goods and raffle prizes.

These were Hedgehogg Florists, Nicola Jayne Celebration Cakes, Christine Anne Rowlands Beauty and Holistic Therapy, and the steward and stewardess of Colne Golf Club.
