AN OTLEY-BASED fundraising group has celebrated its tenth anniversary.

Macmillan Cancer Support’s Otley and Wharfedale fundraising group has raised more than £150,000 for the charity since forming in 2009.

To mark the occasion members enjoyed tea and a ‘birthday’ cake at their November meeting while discussing their progress to date and looking at photographs from the last decade.

The group holds regular coffee morning, table-top sales and fashion shows and is also supported by bequests and donations.

It is supported by some18 members and has a strong committee but is always keen to welcome new recruits - and especially anyone who can help by baking or knitting.

To get involved or to find more about the group, which meets at the Otley Core on Orchard Gate, call 07946 626851.
