Leamington Mayor Cllr Caroline Evetts has helped to raise hundreds of pounds for her chosen charities at the first fundraising event she hosted.

Cllr Evetts hosted a heritage charity walk in Leamington to raise funds of The Alzheimer’s Society, NSPCC and The Samaritans.

The event raised more than £600 for the causes.

Cllr Caroline Evetts said: “The fundraising heritage walk was followed by a vintage tea and historic talk by our guides from the Leamington History Group.

“It was a fantastic afternoon and I was overwhelmed by the amount of support we received for this sell-out event.”

Cllr Evett’s next fundraising event will be a Winter Fashion Show at the Town Hall on September 21.
