Support from a local store has boosted Otley Lions' funds by £577.

The money was raised by the staff and customers of The Original Factory Shop, on Crossgate.

The outlet, which chose the Lions as its charity of the year for 2013 to 2014, organised tombolas and stalls, sold re-usable bags, entered runners for a sponsored road race, sold tickets for the group's Easter Egg Raffle, and provided collection tins.

Manager Peter Darroch, said: "We are proud to support Otley Lions for the invaluable work they do.

"All of the staff have contributed to the fundraising and we are very pleased to have raised more than £500."

A spokesman for the Lions added that they were very grateful to the store for all its help and that the proceeds would bolster its support of many good causes.
