Campaigners fighting to save Huddersfield’s A&E have announced their biggest fundraiser yet – a black-tie ball with exclusive prizes.

And amongst the sought after items for auction will be the gloves that British Super-Lightweight Champion, Tyrone Nurse, will use to defend his title.

The Huddersfield boxer, who we hope will retain his title against Willie Limond in Glasgow on May 28, has become the latest high-profile personality to back the #HandsOffHRI campaign.

Nurse will also be donating his customised #HandsOffHRI t-shirt which he will be wearing when the fight is televised on Sky TV.

Other exclusive items for auction at the ball, at Cedar Court Hotel, Ainley Top, on August 13 (7pm), include a one-off still life painting by Darren Baker.

Baker, originally from Meltham, is famed for his hyper-realistic works, including an official painting of The Queen.

Renowned Holmfirth-based landscape artist Ashley Jackson has also donated a painting for the auction.

Former Coronation Street actor Scott Wright – he played Sam Kingston – will be compering the evening.

The #HandsOffHRI campaign is raising cash to mount a legal challenge against the Right Care Right Time Right Place plan.

Under the plan, Huddersfield Royal Infirmary will lose its A&E department while emergency care will be centralised in Halifax.

Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, Acre Street, Lindley, Huddersfield.

Tickets for the ball are £30 including a three-course dinner and disco – or £340 for a table of 12.

Campaign founder and honorary president Karl Deitch said: “We have got some very sought after donations from talented local people, who have generously given to the campaign to help the town save our hospital and A&E.

“The support has been second to none. Everyone we asked said yes straight away – that shows the passion and feeling they have for the campaign and their town as a whole.

“Come along and support the hands off HRI campaign, get dressed up, have a nice three-course meal, a dance and a good time.

“Then bid on the auction lots! All proceeds go directly into the #HandsOffHRI campaign legal pot so we can fight these proposals.

“It’s going to be a great night. Please come along and support it.”
