Members of Worth Valley Young Farmers Club have raised £720 for Martin House Hospice over the past year. This was raised by the club hosting their annual event, the pram push, on August bank holiday.

Teams from across the Craven district take part every year and this year saw one of the highest turnouts to date. Dressed in a variety of costumes including the characters of toy story, a group of Romans complete with chariot, and a 6 pack of human beer bottles travelled between the pubs of Haworth collecting money for Martins House. The costumes and hand built prams proved popular among the banks holiday tourists. Catherine Bishop, social secretary of the club, stated that "This is the most we have raised for a charity over the years, and Martin House Hospice is such a fantastic charity".

In October, the club held there annual presentation dinner at The 3 Acres pub in Crossroads, where members played games to raise even more money for Martin House. Catherine Bishop explained that "This was something different to raise money, the members loved it and it turned out to be a great addition to the evening".

On Tuesday 17th March, Sarah Tapey from Martin House came to Worth Valley weekly meeting, so members could present her with a cheque.
