Sisters Rachael Parkin and Susie Webb, along with their friend Ellie Wood, are hoping to raise thousands of pounds for charity this summer.

The trio – who have called themselves the Yorkshire Girls – hope to raise £3,000 for Yorkshire Cancer Research by taking part in various events this year.

They have already raised £300 through donations to their website and by holding a baking competition in Wakefield.

Now, the trio are preparing to hold two concerts in Pontefract this weekend.

Mrs Parkin, 33, said: “We’re getting there surely but slowly with the fundraising. Everything is starting to pick up a bit now we have more events planned.”

The girls will host a children’s concert at Pontefract Ex-Servicemen’s Club, on Sessions House Yard on Saturday between 1pm and 4pm.

Dee Adams, mum of Olympic gold medal boxer Nicola, will give a short talk at the event and there will be performances from children and young people, as well as stalls, games, disco and karaoke.

From 7pm there will be a concert for adults at which Mrs Parkin and her husband Mick will be performing an acoustic set.

Fourteen-year-old Archie Hardwick, an acoustic guitar player from Wakefield, and singer Marlie Lewis will also perform.
