NINETY-six year old Hilda Boyce was dishing out kisses on Saturday as she raised money for a Christmas party.

The game nonagenarian set up a kissing booth at a fete run by the sheltered housing complex in Morton Avenue, March.

Lots of visitors puckered up to give Hilda a smacker at 50p a go, and she was delighted to raise around £30.

The fete raised a total of £200, which will go towards the residents’ Christmas party.
