The Breast Cancer Haven in Titchfield offers support to people facing breast cancer and a team of 70 volunteers run events to raise money throughout the year to fund the centre and professionals.

Community fundraising manager Heidi Rehman said: ‘It is our Christmas thank you party for our volunteers.

‘They do so much for us and we could not do without their support and we asked Clive Mantle, who is appearing in Aladdin, along to surprise everyone.’
