27 April 2017 2:42PM

A Cockermouth School pupil is organising a charity night to raise funds for two local groups.

Mark Scott, 14, of Deanscales, want to help the town's mountain rescue team and mechanics band.

The band will play at the event which will also feature a raffle, auction, refreshments and children's games. It will be held in the Kirkstile Community Centre, Dean, on Saturday, May 6, from 7.30pm.

Mark's mother, Julie, who plays in the band, said: "Mark wanted to do something to help other people and came up with the idea to hold a family charity night.

"He and his dad walk some of the fells and he feels that the rescue team deserves the money to go towards the upkeep of equipment. The band money would help pay for uniforms and the upkeep of instruments."

Tickets are £5 adult and £2.50 for under-16s. To book, call Julie on 01900 823401.
