Shot-putter opens Attleborough charity fair

A Norfolk paralympian took time out of training for the London Paralympic Games to open a Christmas Fair in Attleborough at the weekend.

Shot-putter Danny Nobbs, who works for Aviva in Norwich and lives in Attleborough, opened the event on Saturday, which raises money Macmillan Cancer Support.

The annual fair at Attleborough's Connaught Hall, which sells Christmas cards, crackers and gifts, has been organised by the town's Macmillan support group for more than 20 years.

Sandra Adcock, chairman of the fundraising group, said she was 'pleased' with another good turn out.

The event raised a grand total of �3,256.43 for the charity.
