Families flocked to the EllenorLions Hospice in Northfleet to soak up the sunshine at the charity’s annual summer fair.

The event attracted people of all ages and a well-known face –antiques expert Alison Chapman who is a regular on David Dickinson’s Real Deal and Secret Dealer.

A queue snaked its way through the hospice in Coldharbour Road, as the bubbly TV star valued people’s antiques and other treasures in exchange for a donation on Saturday (July 12).

Outside children enjoyed a bouncy castle and kango jumps, while adults treated themselves to beautiful plants donated from local garden centres and tried their luck on the raffle.

People’s generosity helped to raise over £3,000 which will enable the hospice to care for seriously ill adults and children in the local area.

Events manager Emma Whittington said: "We were delighted to see over 350 supporters at the summer fair.

"It was wonderful to have Alison with us for the day, and everyone loved having their antiques valued. We’re very grateful to everyone who contributed to the event and helped to raise so much in support of their local hospice."

EllenorLions Hospices’ sponsored Twilight Walk is coming to Gravesham on Friday, September 19.
