The event is taking place on Saturday April 5 at Corpusty and Saxthorpe Village Hall between 2-5pm.

Mrs Wright, who works part-time at the village shop, said: 'I feel so proud of them and people have been so generous.'
She added the sensory garden would include a vegetable patch and would help Felicity to move around more independently.
The children raised £2,300 through a tombola at Corpusty Stores last year, which they organised. The money went towards a £700 custom-made tricycle for the three-year-old.
Felicity was born five weeks premature and diagnosed in 2012 with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy, caused by brain damage.
She has to use a walking frame because her leg muscles are continuously contracting, which make them stiff.
Tombola tickets can be bought from Corpusty Stores.
