AN elderly care organisation has hosted a scam mail awareness event.

Home Instead Senior Care Leek Moorlands held the 'Scam Mail is Black Mail' meeting at Moorlands House in Stockwell Street, Leek, on Thursday.

Marilyn Baldwin OBE was the special guest.

Marilyn founded the charity Think Jessica after her mum Jessica was repeatedly tricked into sending cash and making money transfers to criminals over a period of five years.
