MARKET traders in Beverley have raised more than £2,000 for a local hospital appeal.

An event on Saturday, May 5, which included a treasure hunt, a raffle and a static bike ride to tie in with the Tour de Yorkshire, raised funds for the Daisy Appeal at Castle Hill hospital.

The charity is funding a new £7.2 million cyclotron and radiopharmacy unit, which will be used to help medics in the earlier detection of cancer, heart disease and dementia.

Organiser Lisa Gray said: “There was an amazing atmosphere on the day and We’re extremely pleased to be handing over more than £2,000. It’s more than we hoped for.”
