COCKTAILS, cakes and a bit of acapella singing in the rain helped to raise over £1,000 for Victim Support.

Hundreds of people visited the stalls set up outside of the Guildhall to celebrate the charity's 40th anniversary.

Staff and volunteers from the city's branch, based in The Tything, Worcester, helped to organise the event which featured non-alcoholic cocktails from Keystones Cocktail Club, facepainting, a raffle and music from Stourport-on-Severn Brass Band and soul band Eeek.

People dug deep and helped to raise £896 for the charity which will be doubled by Santander Worcester.

Christopher Hodgson, service delivery manager, thanked Santander for bringing the total to £1,792 which will go toward supporting people affected by crime.

He said: "I would like to thank Worcester for their generosity – the support is greatly appreciated and I hope, more than anything, we have raised the profile of a charity that provides amazing, life changing support."
