This lucky couple Pamela and David Hunter of Hipperholme are going through the menu with the owner of the Lane Head Hotel restaurant Margaret McCue.

They were the winners of a raffle courtesy of the sponsors A.H Leach Co Ltd and the Lane Head Hotel. The purpose of the raffle was to help raise money for the special care baby unit at Halifax General Hospital. This was back in the summer of 1990 and the raffle raised £138 for the baby unit. Our local business community have always been pleased to help and support local causes.

However, an all too often problem can be too many good and worthwhile causes and organisers perhaps visiting the same businesses too often.
