In past years, charities including Kemp Hospice, Citizens Advice Bureau, Age Concern, the Girl Guides and Wyre Forest’s Special Olympians have been helped.

Carnival chairman Colin Hill said: “We would like to hear from any charity or good cause that helps people in Wyre Forest, which is in need of support, whether that’s for funding towards running costs or for a specific project or equipment.

“We are a small committee and are looking to help a group that has the capacity to help us raise the funds by helping with events such as the annual duck race and door-to-door programme sales.”
