HUNDREDS of people soaked up the sunshine at The Rowans Hospice fair.

Families from across the area went to the fair on Purbrook Heath which was raising money for the hospice.

A band entertained the crowds along with a dog show and vintage cars.

Mum-of-two Helen Carter was there with her daughters Amy and Lucy. The 35-year-old, from Waterlooville, said: ‘We have had a lovely time and the work the Rowans does is fantastic. It has been good to go around the different stalls and listen to the band. The girls have had fun.’

Ruth White, chief executive of The Rowans Hospice, added: ‘The fair is about more than raising money. It’s about bringing the community and families together.’

The fair was officially opened yesterday by mayor of Havant Councillor Leah Turner.
