A Father's Day Brunch held near Bridport has raised £3,000 for two cancer charities.

The event at Symene Cricket Club was organised by Pauline and John Bale from Highways Farm.

It was their 6th charity breakfast which this year included a raffle with prizes generously donated by local businesses.

Pauline says:  "The Big raffle was a great success, babygear paid for the printing,  and we very nearly sold all the tickets!

1st prize £300 Luxury Food Hamper was won by Heath Thresher from the Vauxhall Garage and he was delighted.

"Great idea selling tickets at the Food Festival and Felicity's Farm shop Open Day."

"We had terrific support and wonderful local food donations for our lovely cake stall and the big Raffle."

She adds:  "The food was delicious, presentation good and ably cooked by the men. Leakers very kindly donated all the bread baps, and Balsoms, Denhay and Bob Huxter supplied at cost price.  Brilliant and such fun!"
