TWO Yorkshire Dales outdoor challenges have raised more than £7,500 for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.

The fundraisers were the 10 mile Settle Loop Challenge and the 3 Dales Marathon which went ahead on October 28.

They were  sponsored by 3 Peaks Cycles and Castleberg Outdoors, Settle, and both started and finished at North Ribblesdale RUFC. 

Emma Carr, a member of the Settle fundraising group, said: “We would like to thank everyone for taking part. It was great to see so many walkers, runners and riders enjoying the day."

Adam Brunskill, Sue Ryder Community Fundraiser added: "Events like these just wouldn't be able to happen without all the hard work and dedication from our team of amazing volunteers. On behalf of everyone at Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice, thank you.

“The money raised means we can continue to provide care to people when they need it the most.”
