Christmas fair in Berrow raises over £700 for cancer support charity

A Christmas fair held in Berrow on Sunday (November 18th) raised more than £700 for a local cancer support charity.

The event, 'Shop for a Cure for Christmas', was organsied in aid of Somerset Breakthrough Breast Cancer and attracted large crowds to Berrow Village Hall.

Organiser Holly MacBeth told "We had a fantastic day! There were 26 stalls ranging from on-site photo shoots and jewellery, cards and Christmas decorations to scarves, cakes and pottery."

"We are so very grateful by the turnout we received and the support we had on the day and the weeks leading up to this."

"So many kind people donated tombola gifts which were brilliant plus not to mention the support received by our patron, MP Tessa Munt, Asda, Gerber foods, Cadells Ltd, and Berrow School."

"In total, we raised over £700, which was brilliant as this beat our last event in April of £400. We couldn't do this without the support of the general public and it was so nice to see so many people having fun and enjoying the day."

She added that a further event is being planned for 2013 with the date to be confirmed.
