A charity fun day is banking on community support as it prepares to welcome the crowds on Sunday.

The event being held at the Dutchy’s Tavern, Sunbeach Holiday Village in California, has become established as a regular fixture in the summer fundraising calendar.

Organiser Diane Spooner has amassed a raft of prizes as well as a full programme of music, stalls, and entertainment from the likes of Joe Scripps, Jessica Todd, Jib Phillips, Ricky Lewis, and the Singing Landlord.

Entry is free and there is plenty of outside seating with a play area, bar, and barbecue.

Mrs Spooner raises money for local groups and charities supporting children and young people with autism and learning difficulties but at the same time wants to offer an affordable day out for families with fundraising games costing just 50p or £1.

The day runs from 11am to 5pm.
