A CHARITY for people with learning disabilities held a Christmas market in Peppard.

The Ways and Means Trust’s fund-raiser was held in a greenhouse at the Greenshoots nursery at Manor Farm over three days.

The greenhouse was decorated with fairy lights, tinsel and a Christmas tree.

There were stalls selling home-made jams and preserves, garden tools and second-hand books and DVDs, while visitors could also buy Christmas presents or make their own festive wreaths.

Festive food and drink was served throughout. Students from The Henley College were among those to visit and take part in Christmas activities.



The event raised about £1,000, which will be spent on a polytunnel for plants and easy access raised beds for people in  wheelchairs.

Charity administrator Denise Jones said: “We had about 50 or 60 people over the three days and the atmosphere was lovely.

“The students who came were thoroughly involved and in the middle of everything.

“Over the Christmas period as a whole we’ve raised more than £1,500 but we always need more money.”
