Bumper-packed charities day set to take place in Kenilworth

SOME 20 charities are expected to get-together for a bumper charity day in Kenilworth at the weekend.

Local and national charities including The NSPCC, Soroptimist International, RNLI, Carers Trust Heart of England, Talisman Theatre, Kenilworth Rotary, Dogs for Good, and Mid Warwickshire Cats Protection will all have stalls at the Talisman Shopping Centre on Saturday (September 3).

The charity day runs from 10am to 3pm and is free to enter.

Other charities set to take part are Alzheimer’s Society, Kenilworth WI, Shakespeare Hospice, MacMillan Cancer Support and Myton Hospices.

There will be a host of activities on the day including a raffle, tombola and lucky dip organised by Kenilworth Soroptomists, as well as a specially created ‘pin the flush’ competition to raise money for toilet twinning – a scheme which raises funds for basic toilets in poor communities.

There will also be a furniture sale run by Kenilworth Lions.

Dave Maxted, President of Kenilworth Lions, said: “Following its success last year, we’ve once again invited charitable organisations and volunteer groups from Warwickshire to Kenilworth in September to promote their invaluable and inspiring work to the public.

“I’d like to encourage both locals and visitors to the town to come along and have a look at the various things going on, hear of the amazing volunteering opportunities available and see how many balls you can lob into a full-sized English toilet.

“The Kenilworth Lions have always shown our support for charities through action, and this is another opportunity to do the same. We hope to help each of the charities in attendance raise some money and provide people who pop down with some much-needed entertainment.”
