A MAN who beat cancer is opening up his garden to raise money for charity.
Malcolm Lee, of Shepley, was successfully treated for prostate cancer at Cookridge and St James's Hospital, Leeds.
Now he hopes that visitors will flock to his beautiful garden in Abbey Road next month to help raise money for cancer research charities.
The three-acre garden has been a 50-year labour of love for Mr Lee, helped by his family.
He opened it to the public two years ago and raised £1,500 for charity.
Mr Lee said: "Every penny we take at the event goes to cancer research.
"The three acres of land have taken me 50 years to turn into a series of gardens.
"There are two new features that were not there the last time we opened them up.
"The woodland valley has been redesigned with a log wall and I have also developed a fairly large English wildflower meadow.
"Over the years I have made a small rose garden, created many raised beds and developed the valley and woodland area.
"There was one area which for much of the year was a natural pond.
"The children used it as a boating pond, with an old tin bath for a boat, and I had the idea to excavate the area and make it a pond for the whole year."
* 59 Abbey Road, Shepley is open Saturday, August 13. Garden open 10am to 4.30pm. Admission £1.50.
