The event at the charity’s centre, in Tangmere Crescent, on November 17, included a Santa’s Grotto, a snowman’s wonderland, stalls, games and activities.

Duncan Grant, CEO of the charity, said: “The Christmas Bazaar was a wonderful event and it was great to see so many familiar faces. We are so grateful to have raised �3500 and sincerely thank all the volunteers and Waitrose Upminster, Wilkinsons Romford, MacDonalds and Asda Romford for their support.”
