Yorkshire Indian Society raises thousands for local charities

More than £30,000 has been raised by members of the Yorkshire Indian Society at their annual charity dinner. Around five hundred guests attended the event which raised money for good causes, including the charity Scotty's Little Soldiers, which supports the bereaved children of British Armed Forces who've lost their life in the course of duty, and St Gemma's Hospice, which provides care and support to patients with life-limiting conditions.

The Yorkshire Indian Society was founded in 1985 to raise money for charities both in Yorkshire and India, and to celebrate the successes of members of the Indian community in Yorkshire. More than £250,000 has been raised over the years.
