Members of the Boys’ Brigade groups in Halifax have celebrated the Battalion’s 129th anniversary.

All 12 Boys’ Brigade groups met with Reverend John Hellewell of the Christ Church in Pellon, Halifax, for a service to mark the occasion last weekend, and awards were handed out by The Yorkshire and Humberside District Patron Rev Peter Whittaker. Before the service 150 boys and officers paraded through Halifax town centre with their band.

The Battalion also presented a cheque for £3197 to Overgate Hospice.
