CHILDREN’S charities are set to benefit from a joint fundraising event.

Home-Start South Wiltshire, which supports families with one or more pre-school children in this area, and Save the Children, will share the proceeds from a dinner being held at Hox Brasserie.

It takes place on Thursday, March 7 and will feature an auction including lots of hotel accommodation and a luxury hamper from a farm shop.

Save the Children’s share of the proceeds will go towards its emergency fund helping children affected by the civil war in Syria and flooding in Indonesia.

For more information and tickets, which are £25 each, contact the Home-Start office on 01980 676237, email or call 01722 323113.
