GOOD causes benefited from money raised during town council chairman Mike Selby's year in office.

ARCOS and the League of Friends of Malvern Hospital were the charities Coun Selby chose when he first put on the chain of office this time last year.

This week, he handed over cheques of £1,122.75 to each of the charities, money raised at various events. He said: "It was very difficult to decide which two charities I should support."
