A 10-mile walk raised more than £5,000 for people with autism.

More than 100 people took part in the walk from Hebden Bridge train station to Halifax town centre.

Organiser Cheryl Jones, from Copley, said: “The amount of public support back to Halifax was fantastic.

“We passed through lots of queuing traffic at the Mytholmroyd Gala and raised £335 from that alone.

“I’d like to thank Bar Francesca in Sowerby Bridge and all the staff at Covea Insurance, who raised £700.

The cash will go to Linden Brook Care Home and the Parent and Carers Council.
