A pair of childhood friends organised an autumn fair on Saturday to sell craft items and raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Warfield resident Amy Heath, 31, and 32-year-old Ana Falconer, who lives in Blackamoor Lane, first met when they were in the same year group at Newlands Girls’ School.
The pair stayed in contact and decided to join forces at the weekend to organise the event at St Joseph’s Church in Cookham Road.
An array of craft stalls was on offer at the fair including Amy’s Stella & Dot jewellery stand and Ana’s Usborne book collection.
Delicious cakes and scented candles were also up for grabs while a bouncy castle was laid on for the children.
Stallholders donated 10 per cent of their earnings to Macmillan.
Co-organiser Ana Falconer said: “The way I see it is if one day cancer knocks on my door and I need Macmillan’s help then I’ll know I’ve done my bit.”
