PEOPLE are being encouraged to raise some money for good causes at upcoming coffee mornings being hosted by Pershore's town mayor.

Councillor Charles Tucker hosts the coffee mornings at least once a month and has five coming up in the near future.

The next fundraising morning, which takes place at the Town Hall in Pershore on Saturday (February 22) from 10am is for the Raynauds and Scleroderma Association.

On March 1, from 10am, the event will be in aid of Dementia UK and later in the month, on March 22, they will raise cash for Abbey Park First School Parents and Teacher's Association and on March 29 the Sreepur Village charity will benefit.

Pershore Talking Newspaper and Pathfinders will reap the rewards of a morning on April 5 and on May 3 the Pershore Voluntary Help Centre will receive the money raised.
