The promotion will feature a special display in the Tourist Information Centre, Church Street,.

Susie Forbes of Community Action said: "Being stuck within four walls is a major problem to the elderly and housebound in Malvern. Community Action is pioneering a project to get those people out and about in their own community and therefore achieving maximum independence."
