A TRUST set up to raise funds for a children's hospice is to hold its first public meeting.
The Forget-Me-Not Trust was formed in 1998 to raise cash to build a children's hospice to serve Kirklees and Calderdale.
Over the years, the trust has had many meetings for trustees and its supporters - but this will be the first meeting open to the general public.
The meeting will be held at Baptist Centre, Blackley, on September 29 at 7pm.
The charity is awaiting the results of tests on a potential site near the M62 at Ainley Top.
An anonymous benefactor has offered to meet the £150,000 cost of buying the land if it is suitable for a hospice.
Trustee Mrs Pat Firth, whose husband Geoffrey is chairman of trustees, said: "We want to get members of the public involved.
"We are growing quite quickly and have raised a lot of money this year. People keep asking us how we are getting on, so this is a chance for them to find out.
"We also want to hear any ideas they have for the trust."
The trust will also be forming a new management committee at the meeting.
Support groups for the trust have been working independently all over Kirklees and Calderdale.
Mrs Firth said a new management committee would help co-ordinate these group's activities.
