PEOPLE raised £2,000 by taking their teddies for a charity day out.

The Teddy Toddle was organised by Overgate Hospice, Elland, to help them with their running costs.

Laura Ramsden, community fundraiser, said: “A total of 364 people took part with everybody bringing their favourite teddy.

“We had every one from new born babies right up to grandmas and grandads.”

The fundraisers went on the one mile walk around Ogden reservoir and country park answering a teddy quiz as they went with the winners picking up a chocolate prize.

“It was sleeting early on the day but brightened up and we raised £2,000 which was fantastic,” said Laura.
