A late summer family fun fundraiser hosted by staff and residents at Asquith Hall, Burnley Road, Todmorden, raised £650 for three good causes.

They have pledged £300 to Lauren’s Place, a chairty trying to raise enough money to set up a support centre for young people with mental health issues, create projects for 16-18 year olds and face-to-face signposting services for all ages.

Another £300 will support the Callum Regan Trust. Callum died in a road accident in April and the trust has been set up in his memory to support young people in the area and also focus on driver awareness and safety for teenagers. So far their work has included first aid training, supported by Todmorden Youth Club, of which Callum was a keen supporter.

And £50 will go to Young Minds, a charity which helps young people with emotional or mental health needs, and their parents. Asquith Hall hopes to send more monies from future fundraising events to this charity.

Pictured at the fun day, which included stalls and other entertainment, are Diane Thornber and her grandson Louis Peacock-Thornber, aged four. Louis had his face painted.
