The day was filled with lots of laughter from children who were enjoying both the bouncy castle and the face painting.

Gail Roberts, who is the current Miss Progress, was a special guest who announced the winning raffle tickets. There was also a special visit from one of the teen contestants for Miss Peterborough, Hollie Grant as Princess Elsa for the day.

Emma said: “We raised £405, which is an incredible achievement for me as my target was £200. It’s also a great feeling knowing that my hard work and stress has paid off! It’s encourage me to do a similar event.”
