YOUNGSTERS will enjoy a host of outdoor play equipment thanks to the fundraising efforts of a hotel.

The Park Head Hotel, in Coundon, held a sportsman's dinner in aid of SureStart Wear Valley East and raised £1001 to buy toys and play equipment for youngsters in the Coundon and Leeholme areas.

Hotelier John Khan said: "We were really pleased to help out and hope to continue to support SureStart's efforts in future.

"It is good for a local business to help families, some of which are not well-off."
