Lions Club combined charities fair raises £10,000

The combined charities fair was held at Maidenhead Town Hall on Saturday.

Maidenhead Lions have organised the annual event for 30 years.

Visitors to this year's event at Desborough Hall could choose to support causes ranging from St Mark's Hospital to the air ambulance, Royal British Legion, Cats Protection and many more.

Veteran councillor and former mayor Dorothy Kemp had her work cut out choosing the two winning 'best presented' stalls at the combined charities fair on Saturday.

Mrs Kemp, for many years councillor for the Oldfield ward, chose as winners the ladies of St Luke's Church and the team from Braywick Heath Nurseries.

Each stall won a £50 contribution.

The event raised an estimated £2,000 for the Lions and £8,000 for the charities involved.
