Shop volunteer Joan Brown said: “We are selling the set for £30. The church no longer exists I am told, but there may be people in the Huddersfield area who might like to purchase the set due to its local connection so I thought it would be nice to publicise it in Huddersfield before displaying it in the shop.”

Anyone is interested should contact the shop on 0113 275 4996.
