Paul and Jo Robinson’s open garden raised a tremendous £772 in just four hours for Cancer Research on Sunday.

Paul said: “It was a fantastic day. Despite the England football match being on and other local events, we had a couple of hundred people visit.

“We had a lot of support from neighbours, family and friends. We used our neighbours’ front lawns to set up a raffle station and cake and refreshment stalls.

“We also ran quizzes for adults and children all about our garden. It was great community spirit with family and neighbours involved in selling raffle tickets and serving cakes and refreshments.”
