Guests at a special birthday party gave generously to two charities.

Celebrating her 80th birthday at the Queen Hotel, Todmorden, with family and friends, Myra Bairstow asked for donations in lieu of gifts.

Her gesture meant that £515 was raised for Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team and £160 was raised for the Royal National Institute for the Blind.

Myra said: “The Queen Hotel did us a lovely buffet and everyone enjoyed themselves, it was wonderful day. I’d like to thank all who contributed so generously.”
