A SUMMER fayre saw youngsters and adults raise cash for an armed forces charity.

The event at Admiral Lord Nelson School in Dundas Lane, Portsmouth, had plenty of stalls with goods on offer.

Plush toys were raffled as part of the fundraising bid for Hounds for Heroes.

And the fayre’s fitness event, which comprised a run, a gym test and five exercises, had three levels of difficulty.

Youngsters 14-years-old and older took part in the marshalled Hero, Top Dog or Rookie challenges on the day of the fayre.

The fun was kept going by a range of other activities at the school, including music, dancing and dog shows.

The stands offered people the chance to get refreshments and more entertainment.

Best male, best female and best mixed team, along with individual prizes in different age groups were handed out after the competition.
