Hundreds of people paid a visit to a national charity’s headquarters for a Christmas event.
Penny Brohn Cancer Charity, in Pill, held its first ever craft fair which saw more than 25 stalls selling items including Christmas decorations, homemade chocolate and jams, wooden toys, jewellery and cards.
Approximately 200 people attended the event to help raise around £2,000 for the charity, which provides help and support to anyone over 18 dealing with cancer.
Organiser Carol Ashmore said: “Seeing as it was our first ever one – it went really well and everyone enjoyed themselves.
“Sellers paid for a pitch and every penny raised will help Penny Brohn continue to reach people and families with cancer, before, during and after treatment.
“We are looking to host another in spring.”
