TWO new Otley-themed fundraising badges are now on sale.

Town Mayor Councillor Nigel Francis (Ind, Danefield) has launched a Town Mayor and an Otley Crest badge to raise money for his 14 plus 1 Charity Appeal.

He said: "We believe this is the first time anything like this has been done in Otley.

"The mayor badges come in three different colours - red, blue and green - and on each is printed OTLEY 2017-18.

"To complement the Town Mayor's badge we have also done a re-run of the popular Town Crest badge - the the idea is to give this either to friends who no longer live in Otley or to Otley people to wear it with pride."

The mayor badges cost £2 while the town crest ones are £2.50 and both can be purchased from Otley Core, on Orchard Gate, or from the Colin Pitt garage on Leeds Road.

All of the proceeds will be donated to Cllr Francis's 14 plus 1 appeal which is raising money for: a children's home in Belovo; a library in Menenkyovo; bore holes in Zambia; a library in Gambia; Natureland Seal Sanctuary, Skegness; Hug on a Tray; Otley Navvies Memorial; Otley Parish Church Bells; Hang on to a Dream; St Gemma's Hospice; Martin House Hospice; Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice's Forget-Me-Not suite; Wheatfields Sue Ryder Hospice and the Avro Memorial Appeal.
