Celebrity Darren Day will open this year’s garden party at Overgate Hospice, Elland.

Joining him will be local entertainer Neil Hurst who takes on the role as master of ceremonies.

Attractions include live band Trip Switch and Helen O’Hara’s Dance Troupe.

Younger visitors can also look forward to a bouncy castle and face painting. Refreshments include a barbecue and beer tent.

Goods for sale include children’s games, jewellery and accessories, picnic blankets and plants.

The event is on Sunday, June 17, from noon to 4pm and despite the month there will also be a stall selling Christmas cards and decorations.

Also on that day the Overgate 23-mile Mountain Bike Challenge takes place which starts and finishes at the hospice.

The hospice will also be raffling an orange 17in GC 2011 mountain bike during the afternoon.
