The Burnley Mayoress's fundraising committee will hold a 'pop up' shop in the town centre on Saturday from 10am.

It will be sited in Curzon Street, next to the Marks and Spencer store, and will be selling a variety of goods, from pamper products and stuffed toys to general household items.

To keep youngsters entertained there will be a game of dice with a prize every time. Committee members will be running the shop with the Mayoress Anam Khan and all the money raised will go towards the Mayor of Burnley's charity.
