HUNDREDS of toys were raffled off to raise money for charity.

In Waterlooville, a charity stall was giving away more than 250 toys to families who were also given the chance to sit in a mock air ambulance.

Children picked out raffle numbers and were given a toy.

The money raised was donated to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.

The air ambulance began work in July 2007.

It provides a prompt response to road traffic collisions, sporting accidents, collapses and many other incidents in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Since it began, it has flown to more than 4,800 incidents. This year alone, it has helped in 790 situations.
