RESIDENTS of Shelley are rallying round to raise funds for the tsunami disaster appeal.
Afternoon teas will be served from 2.30pm to 4.30pm on Saturday, February 19, at Shelley Village Hall. There will also be stalls selling bric-a-brac, books and cakes, plus children's activities and a tombola.
Members of Shelley Art Group will also be there selling some of their work for the appeal and a raffle will be run by Shelley Bridge Club.
The fundraising has been organised by Shelley Community Association and groups using the village hall. Tickets cost £2.50 each.
Later that day, a supper dance will be held at the village hall, starting at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £10 with all proceeds going to the appeal. Tickets for both events are available by calling 01484 608126 or 01484 609032.
Members of the Big L line dancing group are also raising funds. They will demonstrate their skills on Sunday, February 27, at the village hall.
An afternoon of activities begins at 2pm with a Body Shop make-up demonstration. There will also be refreshments and a raffle before the line dancing takes place.
Meanwhile, young members of The Georgie School of Dance will perform some of their competition routines at Shelley Methodist Church.
The event gets under way at 7pm on Friday, March 25. For details ring Donna George on 01484 606994.
SHOPPERS have filled buckets with cash while paying for their groceries.
Asda supermarket at Bradford Road, Huddersfield, has handed over £6,781.15 for the tsunami disaster appeal.
The store put buckets at the tills over the past couple of weeks to raise cash. And staff also donated an hour's pay from their February wage to further boost the total.
"It is a magnificent effort by everyone involved and we would like to thank everyone for their generosity," said events organiser Judith Alderman.
The store also organised a raffle in the foyer.
