Event organiser Laura Ferris said: “Despite the downpours, the car park was rammed and hundreds of people came.
“We had a huge table of delicious donated homemade cakes, including an adults-only gin and tonic flavour.
“We also had a 6ft 2ins elf called Bumble who oversaw the write a letter to Santa stall. The postbox was brimming with letters.
“The market raised £633 in total for Clavertots and Save The Children.”
