ALMOST £2,000 was raised at the annual Christmas market at Cardinal Newman Catholic High School in Latchford.

A total of £1,865 has been donated to The Whitechapel Centre, which is a homeless and housing charity, following the fair on December 18.

The fundraiser was organised by head boy Jacob Stokes, head girl Catherine Everitt and the school chaplain Mrs James.

Each form group had their own stall selling a range of items including crepes, popcorn, cakes and sweets and visitors could play games such as play your cards right and a tombola.
