Drinkers in Knottingley raised more than just a glass when they notched up more than £400 for charity.

The White Swan pub, on England Lane, holds an charity annual raffle and this year customers chose the Yorkshire Air Ambulance as the beneficiary.

The raffle raised a total of £465.

Iain Lawrie, landlord, said: “We have done fundraising events in the past for the Prince of Wales Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Support, but this time we wanted to help the air ambulance.

“I want to thank all the customers for their support.”
