A barbecue in memory of a well-known Scout leader has raised more than £1,300 for Yorkshire Cancer Research.
Since Allan Broadbent’s death from cancer 10 years ago at the age of 57, his widow Eileen, daughter Katie, son Chris, daughter-in-law Jill and granddaughter Maya have hosted an annual barbecue at their Honley home.
Eileen said: “Each year, the event has grown. Fifty people attended our first event a decade ago and we raised £300.

This year, 125 people attended, and we raised more than £1,300.
“We are pleased to have raised a record amount for Yorkshire Cancer Research on the 10th anniversary of Allan’s death, and we would like to thank family and friends for their support over the years.”
This year, a barrel of beer was donated by Three Fiends Brewhouse, of Holmfirth
