Two local charities have both received donations of more than £3,000 thanks to the former Chairman of Wyre Forest District Council.
During her year as Chairman of the Council (2013-14), Councillor Fran Oborski raised £6,200 for her chosen charities, Kidderminster Hospital's League of Friends' Scanner appeal and Kidderminster Food Bank based at Baxter Church.
Charity events have included a barbeque at Bodenham Arboretum, a quiz night, a carol service at St Mary and All Saints Church, a raffle and a charity dinner and raffle at La Brasserie, Kidderminster.
