Bring your picnic blankets and food and enjoy a day of family fun which is being held to raise money for charity.

A picnic in the park event is being held at Brandon Country park's orchard and will raise money for St Nicholas Hospice Care and West Suffolk Hospital's My WiSH charity.

The event, on Tuesday, July 25 from 10am until 4pm, will feature a range of activities, including a face painter and a bubble machine.

There will also be a cake stall, tombola, raffle and a guess the name of the teddy stall.

The picnic has been organised by Loraine Skikunas and her friend Julie Cowan

'We have chosen to fundraise for My WiSH as we have both experienced the wonderful care their neonatal ward gives.'
