A SPEN funeral directors’ has raised almost £1,200 for a the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

Gateway Funeral Services directors Janice Hutton and Richard Arnold organised two events – a ladies’ dinner at Bradford College’s Catering Department and a golf day at Cleckheaton Golf Club.

The dinner was attended by 43 women and raised £200, while 50 golfers took part in the golf day, raising around £1,000.

It was supported by friends and businessmen from local companies including teams from the Rising Sun pub at Scholes, the Commercial in Cleckheaton, Speight Building Services and Phoenix Oven Services, both from Cleckheaton, and Miller Advertising of Leeds. As well as organising the event, Gateway Funeral Services also fielded a team.

Richard said: “We have a huge amount of respect for the important work this charity does.”
