Special guests included Henley MP John Howell and Mayor Glen Lambert, who presided over a raffle to which Mary Berry had donated an autographed copy of her latest cookbook as a prize. A total of £720 was raised.

Paul Barrett, who chairs South Oxfordshire Mencap, said: “The awareness day was an unqualified success, blessed with perfect weather and the generous support of Henley residents and visitors. The money will help fund the society’s programme of activities.”
