A FUNERAL business has raised £1,200 for a Huddersfield charity with two events.
Gateway Funeral Services held a ladies’ dinner at Bradford College’s catering department and a golf day at Cleckheaton Golf Club to raise the sum for the West Yorkshire Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice in Brackenhall.
The events were organised by Janice Hutton and Richard Arnold, directors of the Birkenshaw-based independent funeral firm.
The ladies’ dinner raised £200 with 43 ladies enjoying a fabulous meal cooked by the students at Bradford College.
The golf day attracted 50 participants, including friends, business people and teams from two local pubs. The day included a four-ball tournament, prizes and a dinner with guest speaker.
The golf day raised more than £900, but with money still to be collected Gateway has more than beaten its £1,000 target for that event.
