Live music and charity pints raised nearly £5,000 for a children’s hospice.

Hundreds turned out at Ossett Brewery’s annual open day to raise a glass to the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, in Huddersfield.

Local bands performed throughout the day, and there was a grand raffle, face painting and barbecue to entertain families.

Visitors were also able to take a tour of the brewery.

And proceeds from the event totalled £4962.45.

Gaynor Bearder, senior fundraiser at the hospice, said: “The open day was hugely successful and we were lucky to have the sun shining for us. Everybody had a great time and we look forward to doing it again next year.”

The hospice provides support and care for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

Andy Pollard, sales manager at Ossett Brewery, said: “The annual open day is our chance to give something back to the local community while raising cash for a good cause. Our theme of ‘drink for charity’ helped us raise a fantastic amount of money this year.”
