A Christmas fair was organised by Moor Hens WI in aid of both the national organisation and the hospice, which is based in Uphill.

More than 30 stall holders sold Christmas gifts at The Campus in Highlands Lane.

Entertainment was provided by All Stars Dance School who sang carols during the afternoon.

Part of the funds raised will go towards the hospice, which cares for people with life-limiting conditions, and their families, although a final total has not been confirmed.

Group secretary Marta Dance said: “This is our fourth year and probably our best turn out yet.

“We had cakes, hot drinks, Christmas decorations, a tombola and more on offer.”
