HYMN singers in Elland raised a hefty £1,000 for charity.

The singers at Southgate Methodist Church went through the entire Methodist hymnbook, Hymns And Psalms, in their marathon session.

They sang one verse from each of the 823 hymns in the book.

Refreshments were also available and the group were joined by willing volunteers throughout the day.

Half the money goes to Overgate Hospice in Elland and half goes to church funds.
