FACE painting, a visit from firefighters and cake stalls helped raise £750 for the West Hallam Community Pre-School.
The pre-school, which relies on funding, held its Spring Fair at the Village Hall on Saturday April 2.
Emma Chambers, event organiser, said: “We’re so, so pleased with it all.
“We had an amazing turn out, raised some money for the pre-school and everyone had loads of fun too.
“I couldn’t believe the queue for my face painting, it was mad, we were all exhausted afterwards.”
