A COLNE Valley community volunteer is hoping to put together a special poetry book in aid of two charities.

Jenni Smith-Wignall, of Marsden, has been working with her family to put together the Little Book of Poems.

But she is now calling for the help of volunteers, businesses and aspiring poets to get involved.

She said: “We hope to raise money for two charities: Kirkwood Hospice and MacMillan Cancer Support.

“The book will include poems of uplifting and inspirational times, things and moments. The idea is not just to sell the book to raise money but to give something permanent that family members can keep to be inspired and remember their loved ones.”
