WORCESTER has a new fund-raising group, and its first fund-raiser has already been lined-up.

Independent Fundraisers Worcester will be in the Guildhall, Worcester, on Friday, August 22, from 10am, in support of Macmillan Cancer Support's "World Biggest Coffee Morning."

Tea, coffee and cakes will be on offer, together with the chance of a £50 prize in a sweepstake.

Kath Smith, spokesperson for the Independent Fundraisers said the group would be supporting "various events and local charities" from now on.

She said of the coffee morning: "We hope to raise lots of money on the day for this very worthwhile charity."
