A race night held in memory of Harry Johnson, a year since he died, raised £1,300 for Pendleside Hospice.

The event was organised by Harry's wife Jackie at the Colne British Legion.

Jackie said: "Harry loved horse racing, it was his thing, so it seemed right to organise a race night and host it a year to the date of his passing.

"I would like to thank everyone who helped me organise it, donated prizes and made donations - even friends and family who couldn't attend.

"We had a great evening".
