Sam and David Mildon organised the event at the old Tickenham Garden Centre where their Love Wood business is based.

Scores of people turned up to bid for prizes in the charity auction, enjoy the live music and craft stalls, check out Love Wood’s new stock and meet Father Christmas.

Sam and David are raising money for the charity to say thank you to the volunteers who helped their daughter Bella after they came to her rescue when she broke her arm earlier this year.
