3 Yorks charity event

A group of soldiers are hoping to raise up to £10,000 for the 3rd Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment at a charity event today.

It is being held at Hall Bower Athletic Club in Hall Bower and there will be auctions, raffles, street dancing, fireworks along with a performance by 2011 X Factor finalist Jonjo Kerr.

The Yorkshire Regiment has been hit hard by recent losses in Afghanistan.The money raised will go towards Operation Reset, which offers troops respite and rehabilitation when they return from active service.
