South City News: Charity aims to conjure up an entertainer; MOSELEY.
A conjurer with the ability to dazzle an audience is wanted by a group called Broadening Choices for Older People. Bosses are organising a winter wonderland celebration marking the group's diamond anniversary on December 8.
The event, to be held at Highbury Hall, Moseley, will have a 1940s theme, and a Punch and Judy show, sideshow stalls and a singer have already been lined up.
Charitable services manager Gayle Kelly said: "It would be the icing on the cake if we could get a magician.
"We really want to have a 1940s carnival feel to the evening, but we are a charity and the prices we have been quoted are far too expensive for us."
The group provides practical and financial help to elderly people. It also offers sheltered housing, nursing homes and extra care accommodation throughout Birmingham.
