A maker of world-renowned woollen wear has a dapper deal which will suit sharp dressed men and women - and teenage cancer patients.

C&J Antich has donated 400 suits, worth a total of £50,000 in the shops, to the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust (LCYCT).

The suits, in various sizes for men and women, normally sell for £100 to £150.

But the charity, based at Aspley, is selling these formal two-piece suits at cost price - £30 each.

The charity, which supports 13 to 25-year-old cancer patients, will be holding a sale at its head office, Turnbridge Mills, Quay Street, on November 13 (noon-8pm).

Pam Thornes, LCYCT manager, said: “C&J Antich has been a long-term supporter of the trust and for us, this is its biggest donation.

“It’s great that a well known company on our doorstep is willing to join the fight against cancer in young people and it’s nice to know that companies are willing to donate to such good causes.”

LCYCT was founded in memory of Huddersfield teenager Laura Crane, who died from a mixture of cancers in 1996.

The charity is currently negotiating a £25,000 deal to fund new research to treat brain tumours in young people.
