Seven bands performed live, and there were also stalls, entertainment and karaoke in the pub in the evening.
Three sports people also joined in the fun: swimmers Jessica Applegate, 13, and Stephanie Bird, 21, and kick-boxer Cameron McGarrigle, 15.
However, the organisers were
nearly blown away when winds
lifted up the marquees, forcing stewards to strap them back
The organisers are hoping to raise �3,000, to be split between the various causes from a series of fund-
raisers, including the fun-day.
Earlier this month, the Tavern fundraisers did a sponsored bike ride, which raised �900.
And Norwich-based oil firm Aquaterra has given cash to swell the total to more than �1,000.
Fun day co-ordinator Ian Walker thanked all those who had given.
He said: “We are very confident we will raise �3,000.
“It got much better later on Sunday. In the early part of the afternoon the weather conditions were very much against us.”
