A FAIR has helped to raise £30,000 for a Salisbury Hospice Charity.

The Wessex Country Fair, now in its 7th year, welcomed more than 3,000 attendees – an increase on the previous year.

There was something for everyone at the event, including; dressage camels, donkey rides, climbing wall, falconry, rescue dogs, agricultural displays, live music, a wide range of trading stalls as well as displays of vintage cars and steam vehicles.

The organisers said the Hospice Village, run by the hospice staff and volunteers, was a great success giving people the opportunity to learn more about the work of the hospice and providing an area to have a well-deserved sit down and cup of tea.

Event organiser Katie Hughes said: "We are so grateful that so many of the local community turned out to support the event which has raised and incredible amount for Salisbury Hospice. I would like to thank everyone who helped make the day such a success, especially our tremendous volunteers.

"This event would not be possible without the kind permission of the Earl and Countess of Pembroke and without our generous sponsor Smith and Williamson."
