Two children’s charities were boosted by the success of Sandhurst Craft Fair.
Councillors Paul Widdowson and Carole Cupper of Sandhurst Town Council handed over the money raised from the fair in December to Anita Weare from the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice and Gill Weston from the Lewis Marsh Fund on Tuesday, January 22.
A £125 cheque was given to the Lewis Marsh Fund, which visits local sports groups to test young players for heart conditions.
The charity is named after Lewis Marsh, from Sandhurst, who died suddenly in 1998 from an undetected heart defect.
Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice, which was also given £125, towards its fund to build the only children’s hospice in Berkshire.
Cllr Widdowson said: “It felt really great to be able to give both of these charities some money.
“I’m really pleased we are able to support them.”
