It was no ordinary annual garden party at Overgate Hospice last weekend as television star Lucy-Jo Hudson attended the party.

Known for her roles in Coronation Street and Doctors, showed her support for the Elland-based Overgate Hospice celebrating its 35th Anniversary. Before the event she said: “I am delighted to support the fundraising efforts of Overgate. The work they do is just so admirable and I hope everyone will come along, say hello to me and spend lots of money on the stalls.”
