The Halifax Battalion 2013 - 2014 Appeal has raised £828 in just three months.

Robert Batty and Richard Smith from the Boothtown Boys’ Brigade made great strides for the cause by competing in the Leeds Abbey Dash 10K run in November.

Mr Smith’s fundraising efforts were also boosted by his employers Royal Sun Alliance with the company donating £250 to the appeal.

Mr Batty said both men intended competing the run for fun but it soon turned into a challenge to beat each other.

The appeal is raising funds for Ruddis Retreat - a West Yorkshire charity supporting youngsters with cancer.
