A family fun day in Lewsey Farm raised over £6,000 for charity.

Shelley Whitney and Suzi Stock, event organisers, raised money for Great Ormond Street Hospital, Luton and Dunstable University Hospital, Macmillan and SANDS, in memory of Deacon Thompson, a family friend.

Shelley said: “We raised £3,200 at the fun day, it is an amazing amount and we will be dividing it between the charities.

“Also, Lisa McNevin raised £3436 for her brave the shave, so that is over £6600!”

Visitors enjoyed bouncy castles, face painting, a raffle and Lisa shaved off her hair to donate it to The Little Princess Trust.
