A MAY Day fund-raising extravaganza returns to Hampton Ferry this May Bank Holiday Monday

Cash will be raised on Monday (May 2) for the charity ‘Olivia’s Dream to Walk’ from 11am to 3pm including face painting, bouncy castle, fund raising stalls and a Car Boot Sale.

Olivia’s Dream to Walk raises funds for a Hampton girl who has cerebral palsy and has recently undergone a revolutionary operation that will enable her to walk.

The fayre is being organised by Olivia’s mother, Emma Haynes.

Emma was last at the riverside venue in July last year where she completed a gruelling twenty-four hour double marathon dressed as a super hero and raised an incredible £9,695.

AN EVENING of music and song in aid of Arthritis Research UK will be held at Fladbury Church.

A concert for a summer’s evening will be held at the historic church tomorrow (Saturday) from 7pm to raise cash for the cause.

Soprano Jayne Swann tops the bill alongside Marie Randall (contralto), tenor Charles Renshaw, David Thompson on bass and Keith Biggin and John Wilderspin on piano.

Tickets are £15 and include a complementary concert programme and canapes with wine/juice at the interval.

Call 01386 860331 or 07738 078040 for more information.

SIX members of 233 (Pershore) Squadron, Air Training Corps, recently experienced the thrill of flying as they took off from RAF Cosford.

The cadets learnt about the basic controls of the aircraft, undertook aerobatic manoeuvres, and even got to take the controls for themselves.

Cadets Zach Sinclair, Ruben Evans, James Darke, William Ward, Scott Newman and Sam Heeks enjoyed their sky high experience.
