Spokesman Chris Atkinson said: “I am deilghted to report that this year’s Wetherby Lions Beer Festival last Saturday was a great success.

“More than 500 people attended, consuming over 20 firkins of beer and cider and 200 pies.”

He added that the event raised over £3500 for St Gemma’s Hospice but the final figure will be confirmed in a few weeks.

“The Lions would particularly like to thank all the sponsors who so generously supported the Festival and all the entertainers who gave up their time to be there,” added Chris.
