HANDMADE greeting cards were sold at Bourne market to raise money for charity.

More than £90 was raised for Dementia Support South Lincs, when carers gave up their time to run a stall at the market.

The cards where made by carer Pat Johnson, who was helped selling on the stall on Thursday by fellow carers Michelle Addlessee, James Benson and Sandra Coles and friend Rose Rapp.

James also sold homemade stained glass light catchers and entertained children by making balloon animals for a small donation.

Pat said: “We are very pleased with the amount raised, considering we had a heavy rainstorm during the morning.

“We appreciate being able to have the stall annually at the market to enable us to raise some money for our charity which supports 160 families in the Bourne, Deepings and Stamford areas who are living with dementia.”
