Guests enjoyed a meal featuring prime sirloin beef, donated by Dovecote Park near Pontefract, and cask ales from ourselves.

Following the meal, at the Craiglands Hotel in Ilkley, a live and silent auction were staged.

Master of ceremonies was our very own retired chairman Charles Dent, and guest speaker was journalist and cricket correspondent Michael Henderson.

The dinner is organised each year by the Manorlands Challenge Committee and since it was formed 15 years ago, the committee has raised more than £1 million for the hospice.

Manorlands supports patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families at the hospice and in the community, across an area covering Craven, Airedale and Wharfedale as well as parts of Bradford.

All services are free to patients and their loved ones, but it costs £9,000 a day to keep the hospice doors open.

Only a small part of the cost is covered by statutory funds.
