A mother has been called ''cheap'' after guests were asked to pay £70 to attend her son's birthday party.

One mum was stunned when her son brought the invite home for the go karting party, while parents were also asked to give Amazon vouchers as a gift alongside contributing to the deposit, transport and other costs.

She wrote on Mumsnet: ''Son is at a newish school - he was so happy to have been invited to a karting birthday party - turns out the whole class were invited.

''Details were: the date, the activity, transport provided (it's an 80 mile round trip) and a request of Amazon vouchers for a present.

''In the last few weeks I've been updated with further texts asking for deposits for the karting (£20) and the remainder of the day (£30).

''THEN that was followed up by a request for £20 for the transport... This morning she (in my opinion) has the gall to request we pack a generous picnic with ice packs and pack extra so the birthday boy doesn't have to bring anything.''
