The team at the Kings Head in Saltisford is holding a fundraiser on Victorian Evening (Thursday November 28) to help raise funds for The Myton Hospice.

The event invites locals to enjoy a homemade mince pie in exchange for a donation as they venture to or from the lights switch-on in the town centre.

"This is a small token of our support for charity in our community that works tirelessly to help people locally.”

The Myton Hospices helps around 1,800 people and their families across Coventry and Warwickshire.

Sophie Duncan, community fundraiser at The Myton Hospices, said: "The fundraising that the team at The Kings Head is doing makes such a big difference to people in the Coventry and Warwickshire that use our services.

"We have to raise £9.2 million each year to continue providing our care and we couldn’t do it without the support of people like Mike."
