Record numbers of people attended The Rowans Hospice summer fete on Sunday, raising more than £11,000.

Visitors were able to enjoy a wide range of stalls, from traditional sweets and the cake to freshly made pickles and bespoke accessories for dogs.

Throughout the day guests were treated to entertainment from the Pompey Pluckers and Shunnareh Egyptian Belly Dancers.

Fete organiser, Karen Kay said: ‘We would like to thank everyone who supported our summer fete on Sunday, from the people who donated cakes for us to sell to those who took part in our dog show.

‘I really think that we had something for everyone.’

The hospice is already planning ahead to next year’s event.
