Charity to stage community events

A CHARITY is set to raise awareness of its work when it holds two free community events in Hartlepool.

Roseberry Community Consortium, which has a charity shop in Raby Road, is holding a community tea and coffee afternoon at the Raglan Quoit Club, in Stuart Street, on Thursday.

The event will also include raffles, bingo and entertainment, from 2pm to 4pm.

Then, later the same afternoon Starmakerz music and dance workshop will provide singing and dance tuition.

It is aimed at youngsters aged between five and 16 and will be happening from 4.30pm till 6.30pm.

Roseberry Community Consortium works to create stronger community bonds and help young people to get more involved with their neighbourhoods.

Volunteer Pritthijit Datta said: “All of this is made possible because of the funds generated from our community charity shop on Raby Road, Hartlepool, so we are all proud that through the kind donations of the people of Hartlepool goes back in to the community of Hartlepool, bringing meaning to the saying that charity begins at home.”

The charity opened it first shop in Raby Road in December and relies heavily on donations to deliver courses within the community.
