Mulled wine and jewellery were all up for sale at the Pinkneys Green Scout Group Christmas fair in Maidenhead yesterday.
Having added some festive decorations to their hut in Winter Hill Road, the annual event saw visitors enjoy a number of activities.
A tombola, Christmas gifts and toys were among the items on offer, all of which had been donated by friends and family of the scout group.
Scout leader Simon Wheeler said: "It was very successful and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves."
Money was being raised to help buy parcels for the elderly which will be donated by the group this Christmas.
Funds were also being collected for a jamboree to Japan in 2015.
Members of the scout group helped sell the items on the stalls and run activities.
"It means the youngsters themselves can get involved with the fundraising," added Simon.
The money raised is still being calculated.
