Countryfile star helps raise �1k for charity at Fenland family fun day

A FAMILY fun day in Fenland that was supported by TV star Adam Henson raised more than �1,000 for charity.

The celebrity guest - presenter of Countryfile and Lambing Live - met the crowds who flocked to Woodhouse Farm Park in Friday Bridge on Monday May 2 and even helped with sheep shearing.

The event - which Wisbech Rotary Club also helped organise - raised money for Help for Heroes and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

A host of activities were enjoyed on the day including falconry encounters, storytelling, dancing girls and fairground stalls. MP Steve Barclay also got involved in the fun by helping out with pig racing.

Kim Flint, Woodhouse Park Farm owner said: “We are so pleased the day was such a success and are very proud to be able to give money to worthy causes.

“The day’s success was a result of everyone’s charitable attitudes and I would like to thank all who made time in their busy schedules to take part.”

An organised pony ride also raised �90 for the Riding for the Disabled charity.
