A charity fair in a North Somerset village which was the brainchild of a six-year-old girl raised a healthy sum for a worthy cause this week.

People from Winscombe flocked to the community association on Saturday for the fair, which was raising money for Children’s Hospice South West.

Face-painting, stalls and a raffle earned £903.56 for the charity.

Fair organiser, Katie Smith told, the Mercury: “The event was very well attended and it was very successful day.

“It was planned by my step-daughter, Grace Henderson, who is only six years old.

“Thank you to everyone who came.”
