Chocolate fever struck Methley when resident Jim Kerr hosted a tea party for charity The Sick Children’s Trust.

Jim, 63, organised the Big Chocolate Tea Party at Methley Methodist Church, raising £240 for the charity.

Jim, who organised the event with the help of his wife Denise and Lorna Dobson, a support worker and church steward and her student daughter, said: “We had a brilliant day and everyone who came along thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

“In the two hours I find it hard to believe that so many people came to the event and made donations so I must say a huge thank you to the community for supporting me.”
