FUNDRAISERS braved rain to support the Mayor of Mirfield’s charities.

Coun Pat Sutcliffe organised a ‘Zumba in the Park’ session at Battyeford Sporting Club on Sunday.

The event raised £720 for the Matrix and Duke of Edinburgh young people’s charities which Coun Sutcliffe is supporting during her year in office.

She said: “The event went well considering we were in a torrential downpour just 30 minutes before it was due to start.

“The weather was against us and it definitely reduced numbers but we still managed to get around 40 people.”
