Charity raffle at Pinewood Miniature Railway on SundayBy Jeremy Drakes

A handmade dolls house will be raffled during a charity day at Pinewood Miniature Railway.
The house worth £400 was made by railwayman Peter Downes and is the star prize in the raffle to raise funds for Matilda’s Team.
The charity was set up after Bracknell mum Roxanne Shand designed and made a hat for her four-year-old daughter Matilda when she lost her hair through leukaemia treatment.
The Preserving Hats of Pride appeal raises money to allow other children undergoing treatment to have hats designed and made for them.
Visitors to the event in Crowthorne on Sunday can ride on the steam and diesel trains and children can have their faces painted.
As well as the raffle, there will be refreshments and a second hand book stall.
Train rides for vulnerable children run from 9am to 10am and the fundraiser at the Pinewood Centre, Old Wokingham Road, opens to the public from 10am to 1pm.
