The Friends of Weston Hospicecare raised more than £1,000 at an Easter fair on Saturday.

Volunteers helped bring the event together which took place at the Radio Wing Centre at Locking Parklands for the first time.

Families and supporters filled the venue at the weekend to take part in a number of fundraising activities and games.

Weston Hospicecare’s community fundraiser Sue Harding said: “A huge thanks to everyone from Weston Hospicecare to the Friends for organising the Easter fair.
