A crafts group which formed during the pandemic has raised more than £500 from their first exhibition.

The three-day Self-Isolating Stitchers event, in Little Bytham Village Hall, featured 100 pieces of their work, covering traditional embroidery, quilts, mixed media and textile arts.

It attracted around 200 visitors who gave donations totalling £564, with £300 going to the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance, and the rest to the host village hall.
