ALMOST £2,000 was raised at a Christmas fair held by a church in Belper.

St Peter’s Church, on Chesterfield Road, hosted the fair last Saturday, November 19.

Dawn Holden, administrator at the church, said the event raised £1,800. The cash will go into church funds.

She said: “It went very well and we raised a good amount.

“We want to thank everyone who came along and helped raise the money.

“All the usual stalls were there. The event was a success.”

There was a variety of stalls at the event, including a lucky dip.

There was also ‘The Belper Goodwill Auction’ featuring lots donated by local businesses.

Dawn said: “It was very kind of the businesses to donate.”

Refreshments and lunches were also served.
