In pictures: Link Foundation fireworks at Maidenhead United FC

Luminous colours filled the sky above Maidenhead United Football Club on Saturday at an annual fireworks display.

Hundreds of families braved the cold and rain to see the 30-minute light show for the Link Foundation.

The Maidenhead-based children's charity has been holding fireworks at the York Road ground for six years and has raised thousands of pounds from the event, held between 5.30-7.30pm.

Youngsters were amazed by the huge inflatable slide and swinging pirate ship, but organisers said that the mulled wine was the biggest seller.

Annette Allanson, one of the four Link Foundation trustees, said despite fewer numbers than last year, the atmosphere was just as warm.

She added: "The charity is really important because it helps not just the children but also entire families. We provide everything from basic household items to toys.

"It's really lovely that people come out to join us especially in this terrible weather.

"We're not sure how much we've raised from tonight, but it's definitely in the thousands."

Other treats included a tombola and glow in the dark goodies.
