A string of causes across the White Rose county have benefited from the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, which has gone from strength to strenth since her sad passing.

The 50,000 Big Charity Giveaway give charities across West Yorkshire the chance to bid for much-needed funds from the pot of the appeal that bears Jane's name.

Jane's daughter Rebecca, 22, has teamed up with the YEP to identify worthy causes and is inviting charities to apply.

Rebecca said: "There will probably be lots of good causes we have never heard of that could do with some help.

"I recently heard about a charity that recruits people to ride on tandems, with a visually impaired person. It allows people with sight problems to get on a bike. I thought that was great."

Jane was told in 2000 the cancer she had been fighting had returned and she had just six months to live.

But the Rothwell mum-of-three refused to give in and completed a series of incredible challenges, including several marathons and triathlons and a 4,000-mile ride across the USA. She raised 1.75m for charity during her lifetime and after she died, her family pledged to take it to 5m.

* To apply for an award pick up a copy of your YEP, fill in the coupon, add your supporting details, and return. Winners will be informed in April.

The giveaway is open to all registered charities. Applications from children's and cancer charities are especially welcomed but all will be considered by a panel of judges.
