Cash from Mela aids patients.

CASH raised from a Warwickshire Mela is set to benefit mental health patients at St Michael's Hospital in Warwick.

The Mela, which means "getting together" is designed to bring together people from all faiths and walks of life for an afternoon of entertainment and to help local causes.

Music and demonstrations such as Indian fencing and gatka - an ancient martial art - are among the attractions.

Last year's event raised pounds 437 which was increased to pounds 500 thanks to Kashmir Singh Mann and this was donated to St Michael's Hospital.

This year's event will be at the Pump Room Gardens, Leamington, on Sunday, August 15.
