THORNBURY mayor Helen Harrison will host a tea party in the town to raise money for two locally-based charities she is supporting during her term of office.

The event in the Armstrong Hall takes place on Saturday, May 20, and will include musical entertainment by groups of young people from the Thornbury area.

Starting at 2.30pm, the party is a fund raiser for Brain Tumour Support and Jigsaw, the group that supports families with children and young people with extra needs.

An invitation has been extended to local people to go along but the number of seats will be limited and attendance has to be registered ahead of the event by calling the town hall on 01454 412103. 

Donations to the Mayor’s Charity Fund can also be made at the event or at the town hall. 

Councillor Harrison said: “My aim is to arrange events which will attract different sectors of the community.”
