A generous mystery donor has helped Cancer Research UK beat last year’s fundraising total at their Christmas Fair.

In 2014 the event raised around £ 550 but the poor weather this weekend may have deterred some people who wanted to attend Friday’s event at the Old Town Inn.

The charity was set to bank £251, but organiser Beryl Read says a local handed over an additional £500 gift.

They’ve made the sizeable donation on the basis that they remain anonymous.
