A FORMER Stourport mayor have raised over £8k for his chosen charities.

Councillor David Little, who was last mayor of Stourport from 2018 to 2019, raised a total of £8.256.

The funds will be split evenly between the two charities Crohn’s and Colitis UK and St Richards Hospice.

The former mayor said that he could have raised the "amazing sum" on his own and has thanked his family and friends for help.

He has praised local businesses who supported the fundraising effort, including Stourport Yacht Club , Kidderminster Carolians Rugby Club, Bewdley Pines Golf Club and Gilt Edge Bowling Club.
