Strawberries and cream helped people in Doddington brighten up what was a soggy day on Saturday.
The village strawberry fair took place in St Mary's Church and raised £450, which will go towards the £30,000 needed every year to keep the 13th century building open.
There was a variety of stalls and games to challenge visitors, including a final chance to take part in a general knowledge quiz, which has been running in Doddington for the last month.
Vicki Smith, one of the event organisers, said: "The strawberries and cream proved so popular that even if we had had twice as many it would still not have been enough."
