A KIDDERMINSTER charity is hoping to find a loved-up local to propose to their partner at an upcoming Leap Day fundraising gig.

Kidderminster cover band Blind Lemon will be performing soul, RnB, ska and new wave hits at the town hall on Saturday, February 29 in aid of the Crackerjack's Children's Trust - and the charity is urging one happy couple to make the most of the unique opportunity by getting engaged on stage.

Money raised from the event will go towards supporting children with disabilities. Crackerjacks runs a specially-adapted respite home in Somerset which allows families to enjoy a well-deserved break.

Charity CEO Terry Bull said: "We are extremely grateful and excited about our upcoming event and would like to say a big thank you to Blind Lemon, the Town Council and especially the Mayor of Kidderminster, Councillor David Ross, for supporting Crackerjacks and allowing us the use this magnificent building to host the event.

"The Mayor has been very kind in selecting Crackerjacks as one of his three chosen charities and we are delighted and overwhelmed by his continuous support.

"We are hoping that the community will support this brilliant event to make it a big success to allow Crackerjack to continue funding Ray’s Sunshine Respite Holiday Home and bring big smiles and happiness to the children’s faces.

"With this being a Leap Year, you could even take this opportunity to have the most unusual proposal during the event by proposing on stage to your loved one in front of an audience of hundreds and make it a night to remember!"

For details, contact Crackerjacks on 0300 124 0122.

Tickets for the gig cost £10 each. Doors open at 7.30pm and the band will be on stage from 9pm for a two-hour show.

There are raffle prizes to be won which have been donated by local organisations. Visit kidderminstertownhall.org.uk or call 01562 732 158 for tickets.
