Close-knit neighbours and keen sewers on Melton’s Baldocks Lane held a Christmas event in their back gardens for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance.
Sue Dickinson, Jenny Foley and Carol Varnham turned their outside sewing room into ‘Santa’s shop’ with toys and sweets for children and handmade crafts and cards for sale. They also had hot dogs, mince pies, mulled wine and more refreshments. Activities included a raffle, tombola, name the teddy and guess the cake’s weight contests. The event raised £236.46.
