Larne Roseann Cordt, event organiser, said: "We chose Luton Foodbank because we worked with them last year and on Mother's Day this year, and what they do is just amazing.

"We want to help them and support what they are doing, last time we helped them pack boxes and donated food items, but this year we will be raising money to help them continue the work they are doing.

"We have already raised £150 and we are hoping to reach the £750 mark on the day.

"We will have raffle prizes from local businesses and suppliers and we also have a Rolls Royce with a driver, that can be won on the day.
