Mayor of Northampton Councillor Gareth Eales has had a number of charity boxes produced for his chosen charity of the year - and he is hoping you can host one of them.

Councillor Gareth Eales (Lab, Spencer) has had a number of charity collection boxes made on behalf of Alfie Bear's Journey and he wants to get them into places across the town with high footfall to raise much-needed funds.

The mayor said: "I would really appreciate the good people of Northampton's help with this. I'm asking if anyone knows of a good place we can put one of our Alfie Bear's charity collection boxes to please get in touch.

"It needs to be a public place or a place with high, bars, restaurants, shops, workplaces, staff canteen's etc...but wherever really."
