Paul and Renate O’Donnell hosted a weekend craft fair at their home to raise money for the Children’s Hospice South West, which helps children across the North Somerert area.

There were handmade crafts, woodwork, floral art, jewellery and ceramics on sale, and visitors were also able to enjoy a cream tea.

Paul is a former cabinet-maker and makes hand-carved wooden trinkets, whereas Renate makes items including handbags.
