THOUSANDS of lovers of all things retro rolled back the years and raised more than £13,000 for charity at a vintage fair.

It was the ninth year the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity held the event at Cressing Temple Barns with more than 2,500 people going.

Kate Alden, fundraising manager, said: “It was fantastic to see so many people coming along to the fair to enjoy themselves while supporting our charity.

“The fair has been a great success and looks set to have raised more than £13,000, which will go to supporting those affected in Essex, London and Hertfordshire.

“We would like to thank Cressing Temple Barns for again hosting our event, all of our visitors, stall holders and of course our supporters for making it such a fantastic event.”
