ALMOST £600 was raised to support people with neurological degenerative conditions.

The Kingdom Foundation held a garden party in Honley in support of the charity.

The Foundation aims to address the gap in specialist housing provision and changes needed to ensure those aged over 18 living with a complex neurological degenerative disorder can stay independent in homes with suitable facilities.

The garden party was opened by Professor Clive Emsley, historian, author, broadcaster and criminologist of Open University fame, and Olympic torchbearer Callum Parkinson attended with his torch.

A sponsored walk is planned for Sunday, July 22, and the Foundation is now selling 2013 dog calendars for £3.99 and for more details visit the website
