A Liversedge resident has turned trash into cash in a bid to raise funds for local not-for-profit social enterprise Transformers North.

Clare Berry transformed old empty spirit bottles, the majority donated by Robert and Claire Toulson at the Rising Sun pub, into decorative table lights to raise cash which was used to buy tools, equipment and cold weather clothing.

Rebecca Houlding, director of Transformers North, said: “A huge thank you to Clare Berry from all of us at Transformers North for her care and support with our project.”
