AN annual charity clay pigeon shoot was on target for Manorlands.

The event, organised by Silsden man Nobby Clarke, raised £3,000 for the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice.

Nearly 200 people attended.

Since the event – held at Riddlesden – was first staged for Manorlands in 2015, more than £10,000 has been coined-in.

Tribute is paid to businesses and individuals for their support – including Chris Herd Butchers, Craven Bakery, Ripon Farm Services, the Busfeild Arms at East Morton, and Bob Bradley and Tim Robinson.

Andrew Wood, community fundraising manager at Manorlands, says the backing received from such events is crucial to maintaining the hospice's services.

"It is events such as these that allow us to keep providing care for more people in the area," he added.

"Our thanks go to Nobby and all those who took part in the shoot."

Manorlands supports patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families at the hospice and in the community, across an area covering Craven, Airedale and Wharfedale as well as parts of Bradford.

All services are free to patients and their loved ones, but it costs £9,000 a day to keep the hospice doors open.

Only a small part of the cost is covered by statutory funds.
