A PAINTING of Castle Hill could raise extra cash for a young couple who are off to trek the Great Wall Of China for charity.

People are rallying round to help them fulfil their dream in May 2006.

Andy Cooke, 24, of Flockton, and his 21-year-old girlfriend, Joanne Asquith, of Newsome, are both studying for degrees in youth and community work at Huddersfield University.

They will be joining other Cancer Research UK fundraisers for the 10-day trek along a 60-mile stretch of the Great Wall Of China, but must raise £3,000 each to go.

Their latest fundraising project is raffling this watercolour of Castle Hill donated by Flockton-based artist Neville Duke.

The painting is being raffled in early May and raffle tickets are available in Flockton shops.

Andy's father, Sam, said: "Andy and Joanne have paid for their flights so the £3,000 they need to raise each is all going to Cancer Research."
