The second White Lily Christmas Fayre raised more than £1,000 for local hospices after a money-spinning day at The Met.

Traders had a good day at the event and Cooper Malton donated and the prize of a Mini for a weekend.

Supporters donated chocolate for the tombola, prizes for the raffle and baked cakes for the cake stall.

That, and a 50p per cup of Baytown coffee along with many kind donations on the day, set White Lily on the way to another successful fund-raising event.

Money raised throughout the year will go to St Catherine’s and Butterwick Hospices, and Zoe’s Place.

Lucy Bowes, who organises the events in memory of her late parents, said: “The support White Lily gets from the local community is fantastic and we have a fun-filled fund-raising year ahead.

“The finale , the White Lily Ball, takes place at the Stables on May 29 and will be the biggest one to date.

“Planning will begin in the new year with tickets on sale in the spring.”
