Motorists did a double taken when a World War One ambulance took to the roads of Elland.
That’s because the military-style vehicle was actually a hospital bed that had been decked out as part of a charity fundraiser.
Members of the Bankfield Social Club also dressed up in war-time or hospital costumes as they pushed the re-vamped bed around ten of the town’s pubs to raise money for Macmillan Nurses.

The idea was that of Bankfield stewardess Lorraine Dodd, who hopes it will become an annual event.
Mrs Dodd said: “We all know someone who has been affected by cancer and Macmillan do amazing things.
“Sadly it touches a lot of people’s lives and we want to support a charity that helps people.”
Mrs Dodd’s brother, Brian Wormald, was the creative mind behind the hospital bed, turning it into an ambulance to coincide with the centenary of the start of World War One.
There was also children’s games, a bouncy castle, raffles, stalls and karaoke.
“It’s take a lot of organising but everyone has mucked in, Mrs Dodd added. “We used to do it a lot seven or so years ago but we had to stop for a while and it’s time we did something every year.
“We try to support charity a lot, previously we’ve raised money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.
“One year we dressed up as Thomas the Tank Engine and raised £6,500. It will be good to do something like that every year.”
Macmillan Nurses is a charity that specialises in cancer and palliative care, with nurses providing support and information to people with cancer, their families, friends and carers.
