A Christmas Fair held at an allotment in Great Barr has raised more than £1,000 for a sensory garden planned for the site.
More than 500 people visited the allotment on Beeches Road where festive food, drinks and trinkets, including pickles, jams, chutneys and cakes made by the allotment holders, were on sale.
A total of 200 presents donated by a local businessman were given away at a Santa’s Grotto whilst a raffle and tombola also helped to raise funds at the fair, one of a number of fundraising events which take place at the allotment throughout the year.
The fair was organised by Joanne Spencer, secretary at the Birmingham office of real estate advisers DTZ.
