A WORCESTER church which holds a monthly musical coffee morning enjoyed the best turnout they have ever had since it launched 18 months ago.

About 75 people turned out on Saturday to the fundraiser in St Martin's Church and enjoyed a cup of coffee, speciality teas and home made cakes served to the backdrop of music from a group from the Worcester Male Voice Choir.

The free coffee concerts are held in the church every fourth Saturday of the month from 10.30am to 11.30am and each month the musicians choose to give any donations to a charity of their choice.

This month's event raised £282 for Worcester Snoezelan, a multi-sensory environment for people with severe learning disabilities.

Organiser David Scott said the event went really well.

"We had the most we've ever had at a coffee concert." he said. "We had about 25 to 30 from the Male Voice Choir which was very nice. They enjoyed themselves and the people enjoyed it too.

"The coffee concerts are generally proving very popular, we get about 60 people every month. We thought it would be a nice thing for people to come and have a good cup of coffee and home made cakes, people just like coming."

Next month's event on Saturday, April 26 will have Renaissance music from The Brass Aloud Quintet with John Colborne playing lute and singing.

Proceeds will go to the Cats Protection League.

Well done to the Church for raising money for charity, but the inability of WN reporters to spell anything unusual strikes again. The word is Snoezelen not Snoezelan.
