The event, opened by the mayor Havering, Cllr Brian Eagling, also featured face painting and craft tables which proved ever popular with the children.

Members of the Shenfield Operatic Society stirred Christmas spirits by singing carols for everyone and local author “Aunty Val” signed copies of children’s books.

First Step fundraising manager, Michelle Mitchell said: “We want to thank everyone who came and supported a wonderful event that helped us raise a wonderful amount of money.

The charity raised more than £2600 which will be used to continue supporting families of babies and pre-school children with special needs and disabilities in Havering.
