LOVE them or hate them, garish Christmas jumpers, scarves and hats were very much in evidence on Ledbury’s streets this week.

Volunteers at a charity festive fair decided the seasonal garments were an absolute must.

They even wore them in advance of the fundraising event, set to take place at the Royal British Legion Club tomorrow (Saturday), from 9.30am to 12.30pm. Organiser Kerry Dixon, aged 25, said: “I have lived in Ledbury all my life and this year I decided to hold a charity Christmas fair in aid of Action for Children.

“This is a charity that means something to me as I work with young adults with learning disabilities and also as a voluntary work at Ledbury Primary School.”

“I have been working extremely hard for several months making various crafts etc to sell and also collecting goods for the raffle.

“I have fantastic family and friends who have helped me along the way and will be helping on the day also.

“We are sure to be wearing our Christmas gear!”

The charity aims to help the UK’s most vulnerable and neglected children and young people.
