Facepainting, Asian food and independently-owned craft stalls went down a treat at a family fun day at the Larchfield Community Centre on Saturday.

The event, organised by Jodie Clarke, from Chapel Court, raised £341 for Cancer Research UK.

A number of stalls selling cakes, homemade bibs, colourful flip flops and children's books and toys were outside the centre.

About 60 children turned up with their families throughout the day and enjoyed face painting, a guess the name of the teddy competition and a children's art table.

A family-run Asian food stand was very popular and sold out before the end of the day.

A number of prizes donated by businesses from the surrounding area were won in a raffle.

Jodie said: "People I know have died of cancer, my dad had it and luckily got the all clear, that's what made me want to organise this day.

"I didn't expect so many people to come because there was a lot going on including the Maidenhead Beer Festival."
