Marching contest brings in the pounds

Brighouse and District Lions have been raising funds and making donations to charities.

At their December meeting the money raised at the Brighouse Marching Band Contest was donated to Overgate Hospice in Elland and Heartbeat - The Brighouse Heart Support Group.

Both charities were presented with £300 each.

The same amount was also donated to Breast Cancer Care through the Boobs and Brass band who performed in the concert during the band contest weekend.
