A HELP the Heroes fundraising bid is set to strike a chord with regulars at a Cradley Heath pub.

The two-day event at The Swan – known as Jaspers - will kick-off with a karaoke and games night on Sunday (May 25).

Ex-serviceman Lee Pearson, who runs the Star for a Night karaoke team, is providing their services free of charge.

There will also be video horse racing and a Play Your Cards Right game for guests to enter, with the fun starting at 6pm.

A raffle will also be staged with prizes donated by local businesses.

On Bank Holiday Monday (May 26) there will be a pig and roast and two bands playing at the Providence Street pub for most of the day.

Help the Heroes co-ordinator for the West Midlands, ex-serviceman Darren Gethin said it was the first time the pub had been a venue for a fundraiser by the charity and thanked landlord Paul Mole for his support.

He said: “There’ll be lots of good entertainment and we’re hoping for a big turnout to raise lots of money for the charity.”

Help The Heroes merchandise, including hoodies, t-shirts and mugs, will also be on sale.
