MUSIC fans are in for a treat this week if they visit Scarborough’s Mind charity shop in North Marine Road.

To celebrate Mind Music Week a selection of items such as LPs, CDs and musical instruments will be on sale.

People are also encouraged to donate any music-related items which they no longer need to the shop.

Manager Lucy Turner said: “We’ve got some interesting records we’ve saved to go on sale this week, such as Elvis and Jimi Hendrix.

“It’s a good time for collectors to come down and have a look.”

Mental health charity Mind has also announced it has a new president.

Lord Melvyn Bragg has stepped down after 15 years and will hand the presidency over to Stephen Fry.

Ms Turner said: “I’m thrilled that Stephen Fry is to become the next president of Mind. He has already done much to reduce the stigma around mental health through his television documentary and his writing, describing his experiences of bipolar disorder.”
