HUNDREDS flocked to Pewsey's Bouverie Hall on Saturday for the Marlborough and District Rotary Club’s Spring Fair which raised more than £2,200 in aid of a radiotherapy appeal.

For the second year running the club hosted the fair at the North Street venue which involved nearly 20 different stalls and attracted nearly 400 people, all raising funds for the Brighter Futures radiotherapy appeal at Swindon’s Great Western Hospital.

Stall holders proudly showcased their handbags, silk flowers, clothes, jewellery and candles and the rotary club put on a tombola and cake sale to help boost their fundraising total.

Club member Geoff Oades said: "We are extremely pleased to have raised such a great total for a great cause in what was a really enjoyable day.

"As it was such a lovely day we can forgive those who decided to enjoy the sunshine instead of being indoors at the fair but it was still a very fun occasion.

"We had an excellent range of products on display and there was a lot of banter and friendly chats. Rotary owe a big thank you to the people of Pewsey and to local businesses for donating the tombola prizes. The Raffle was well supported with prizes of a large basket of Easter eggs and a bottle of champagne.

"I think it is highly likely that it will be back for a third year as we just enjoy it so much and so do the people who come along."

Since the radiotherapy appeal began, more than £1m has been raised towards the £2.9m project.
