Crafty Ladies raise funds

Northowram Library’s ‘Crafty Ladies’ raised £720 at a busy fundraising day.

The money - raised through the sale of handmade crafts and cakes - will be shared equally between Take Heart - a charity that cares for heart patients and their families - and the Mayor’s chosen charities which include Calder Valley Search and Rescue and the Halifax Stroke Club.

The Mayor, coun Ann Martin, and her consort Mohammed Naeem met the Crafty Ladies for refreshments as part of a cheque giving ceremony where they were also shown some of the crafts the ladies produce.
