THE Bromsgrove branch of a national charity is holding a special Valentine's Day-themed event.

Townsfolk are being encouraged to say I do to being a volunteer and making a donation.

The ExtraCare Charitable Trust enables older people to enjoy a healthier, active and more independent lifestyle in its housing developments and retirement villages.

The fun event, called Be My Valentine Volunteer, is being held at the Extracare charitable trust shop, in Mill Lane on Valentine's Day this Friday, February 14.

The shop is also welcoming donations. If items are too heavy, collections can be arranged.

To organise a collection speak to Jenny or Betty at the shop on 01527 579294.
