THREE cast members from popular TV soap Emmerdale were guest speakers at a lunch at Cracoe Village Hall organised by Wharfedale Support Group For Manorlands Hospice as it celebrated 15 years of fundraising.

The special guests were Charlotte Bellamy who plays Laurel Thomas, Katherine Dow Blyton who plays Harriet Finch and Zoe Henry who plays Rhona Goskirk.

The trio each entertained the 120 attendees with their Emmerdale tales (no plot spoilers allowed). The actors had given their services for free while Morrisons, Skipton, had provided raffle prizes.

Group secretary Hanneke Dye said it been a wonderful afternoon and was pleased to announce the lunch had raised £2,500 for the hospice.
