Older Otley residents can enjoy a free hot weekly meal over the remaining weeks of winter.

Otley Action for Older People is using part of a £2,040 grant it has just been awarded to fund a soup kitchen at the Methodist Church.

Anyone living in the town who is over 60 is invited to attend the event, which runs from noon to 1pm each Wednesday until the end of March.

The charity can help with transport if required. Call (01943) 463965 for more details.

The grant was awarded by the Leeds Community Foundation in partnership with the Yorkshire Evening Post and Leeds City Council.
