THE Pennine Way Foresters group has donated £1,000 to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance charity.
The Pennine Way Foresters - which covers Huddersfield and Halifax - is one of 82 Foresters branches in the UK.
Foresters originated as a mutual aid society - where working people saved money together to help each other through troubled times.
Now it is a social group which raises cash for charities.
The Pennine Way Foresters raised the cash for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance at events including raffles, day trips, dinner dances, coffee mornings and craft stalls.
At a recent Foresters' meeting, chairwoman Yvonne Clay and branch president Andrew Oldfield presented the money to Yorkshire Air Ambulance fundraising representative Paul Gowland.
Mr Gowland also gave a talk to Foresters members about the work of the air ambulance.
Foresters member Judith Oldfield said: "The air ambulance has been our branch's chosen charity for the past year and the branch is now starting to raise funds for its new chosen charity, the Forget-me-not Trust."
The Forget-me-not Trust is raising money to build a children's hospice to serve Calderdale and Kirklees.
The Foresters will be holding a race night and coffee morning this month for the Forget-me-not Trust.
