FESTIVE fundraising was sewn up at Kelsall Christmas Craft Fair.
The event, showcasing the talents of local craftsmen and women, was organised by Ashton Hayes charity Ash-worth Time Bank.
It raised almost £900 in just six hours of sales.
Funded by the Big Lottery Reaching Communities grant, the time bank provides free activities and services to the vulnerable and elderly members of the community.
Project and grants manager Susan Ross-Turner said: “We were absolutely thrilled with how it went, it was a fabulous day.
“We are a charity which encourages rural people to give their time and skills to help older members of the community.
“We now have more than 300 members from all of Cheshire and we want to help as many people as possible. I have been with the group for five years and I can tell you that it is such a worthwhile cause.
“It really does make such a difference to people and their carers.”
Ash-worth Time Bank relies on help of volunteers and already has groups dedicated to art, walking, pilates and also access, given for free, to ten holistic therapies who offer courses in reflexology.

The charity is holding a craft and table-top sale at Delamere Community Centre, on Station Road, on Saturday, December 12, from 10am-1pm.
