In store there was a collection bucket and information about the Faye Knowles Chapman foundation - who, aged 24, lost her live to cervical cancer, in March 2013.

The foundation aims to educate women on the importance of cervical screening.

Fayes mother Eileen Chapman, of Lightcliffe said: “We’re petitioning for screening to be lowered from age 25 to 20 so that other families don’t have to go through what we have.”

The event raised £200. On November 30 and October 1 there will be a bag packing fundraiser for the foundation.
