Hundreds of people flocked to Chalfont St Giles to raise money for the children of Syria.

A street collection in the village and Christmas stalls in the Reading Room, High Street, along with donations, helped organisers raise £2,055 on Friday (December 9).

The stalls - selling all sizes of Christmas cakes and table decorations - were all sold out by 1pm, and Vivienne Greenfield, one of the brains behind the fundraising drive, said the present wrapping service was busy all day.

So far the group of villagers have raised more than £3,200 for UNICEF, which is one of the few charities still operating in Syria, with more money still coming in.

A Justgiving page has also raised £1,145.

There was an information stall specifically on the Syrian civil war which included a quiz to help people focus, with around 50 people taking part.
