Father Christmas and a flock of alpacas made appearances at the Christmas fair yesterday, which is set to raise hundreds of pounds for hospital's charity appeal.

Entertainment was provided by singing from Garrick Green Primary School Singers, The CC Choir, the NNUH choir and a performance of bell ringing by the Hornington Bell ringers and a firework display.

Visitors were also able to browse a variety of stalls in the East Atrium and purchase anything from food, cakes, beer, books, toys and gifts, to clothes and jewellery to help raise funds for the NHS trust's Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal.

The event also included a Santa's grotto, face painting and craft stalls.

The charity has almost reached the halfway mark to treat more cancer patients locally.
