The Christmas Fayre raised a record £26,000 for the Hospice after thousands enjoyed a day of festive fun.

The famous High Street was transformed into a festive marketplace as 70 stalls sold a variety of goods and festive bargains, from clothing and toys, to continental foods and Christmas puddings.

Children had the chance to visit Santa's Grotto, enjoy pony rides and meet popular TV characters Ben And Holly. There were also fairground rides on offer, including a Big Wheel, Helter Skelter, Train, Fun House and Tea Cups.

Families also enjoyed live music and entertainment from local bands and school choirs.

Over 100 volunteers helped to make the day a huge success.

St John's Hospice Director of Fundraising Mark Thomas said: "I like to thank all the sponsors who made the event possible as well as the whole community for all their support. We  are delighted to raise such a big sum of money, which will help us continue to provide free care for 3,000 patients and their families every year."

"We have had an incredible year and have now raised over £100,000 across our fayres in 2014 when we celebrated our 30th birthday. We can't thank everyone enough and promise we will be back with bigger plans next year."

Sponsors included Winkworth, Barclays, Casualty First, Lord's Cricket Ground, Seddons and Karidis
