MANORLANDS Hospice is to benefit from the Gateways Music Festival which is taking place in Skipton over August 6, 7 and 8.

Festival organisers have partnered with the hospice and announced that all proceeds from the event parking will be going directly to the Sue Ryder charity based in Oxenhope.

Hospice volunteers will be managing the festival car parks, which are located at Skipton Auction Mart, Craven College, Skipton Academy and Sandylands field.

The cost to park is £5 per vehicle per day and all proceeds will go to support the hospice’s vital work in the community.

Festival Director Eddie Elliott-Smith, said: “We’re so grateful to the local businesses and organisations that have come forward to let the use of their land for parking. The support to Gateways and Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice has been amazing.

“Supporting charities has always been at the centre of Gateways from the outset. When we mentioned Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice all the team were 100 per cent behind the decision.

Molly Ralphson, Sue Ryder community fundraiser said: “We’re really grateful to the organisers of Gateways Festival for choosing to support us. Every pound raised makes a huge difference.”

Car park booking is available online in advance of the event, in addition to payments being accepted on the day. The advantage of booking online is that parking is guaranteed and you will receive up-to-date messages on the day directing you to the relevant car parks.
