A CHARITY night featuring The Intros, to raise funds for Troop Aid, will take place at The Hanbury Turn next Friday (May 18).

Troop Aid provides packages at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital for injured servicemen and women who are returning from action in Afghanistan.

Each parcel costs £25 and contains items the soldiers will need when they arrive in hospital, including clean clothes and underwear, toiletries, a mobile phone with credit so they can contact their loved ones and a TV card.

As well as the live entertainment, there will also be a raffle, games and more.

The evening has been organised by Karen Firth, the landlady of the Hanbury Turn, and Maria Fisher, whose son is in the army.

Maria told The Standard: “The Intros are a group of postmen who perform a mixture of music and comedy.

“They are absolutely hilarious - it promises to be a fantastic and fun evening.”

Admission is free to the event and for more, call 01527 577187.
