Hundreds of people – many in fancy dress –took part in the Farnley Tyas Fun Run yesterday .

Event organiser Samantha Kaye, 38, decided to get the three-mile run off the ground four years ago in a bid to do something for the community – namely raise funds for Kirkwood Hospice in Dalton.

From 9.45am roads throughout Farnley Tyas were closed as the fundraising funseekers hit the road.

Fundraising was as generous as ever with Kate’s sponsor money alone raising more than £500.

The event was expected to raise thousands of pounds.
