DEDICATED Winchester fundraisers joined in the fun of Alresford Apple Day to support vulnerable communities around the globe.

Clare Eacott and her family raised £202 at the harvest celebration, with a stall for the international development aid charity Christian Aid.

Held at St John’s Church on East Street, Apple Day included all kinds of stalls, entertainment and games as well as traditional apple pressing sessions with the Alresford Rotary Club.

Clare and her family had their own stall selling homemade items to raise money for Christian Aid.

She said: “We were selling jam and marmalade, as well as various things we’ve sewn and knitted - advent calendars, bags, little houses to cover tissue boxes, beanbags, decorative cushions, knitted toys, baby blankets, gloves and mittens.

“We’ve been supporting Christian Aid for decades and were pleased to be able to talk to people about the work they do, supporting people in need around the world.”

Christian Aid works alongside local partners campaigning on human rights issues, long-term projects to support communities out of poverty, and humanitarian aid such as the recent Libya Floods Appeal.
