THE Hereford Haven has a busy week ahead with an awareness day this weekend.

Find out why we are raising another £30,000 through our One in Eight appeal in Hereford High Town this Saturday.

The breast cancer support centre will have an exhibition caravan outside WHSmith's between 9am and 3pm explaining the good work they do.

The Haven flamingos and camel will be on duty with collecting buckets, along with other volunteers, including Cllr Brian Wilcox, chairman of Herefordshire Council.

There will be entertainment all day to raise awareness of the work the centre does.
