More than £1,000 has been raised at a charity family fun day to support families living with diabetes.

The event, hosted by Lilo Parla, landlord of The Mill, and organised by Jenny Carr with the support of family and friends, was the second of its kind following a successful fun day last year.

The day saw entertainment from local groups, including Allen School of Dance, Harlequin Theatre Arts and United in the Community Cheerleading, as well as a performance from local band The UltraViolet.

The focus this year was on promoting local crafts people and activities in and around Boston.

Pilgrim Bowmen gave people the opportunity to have a go at archery, while coaches from The Bears Coaching encouraged children to try out their goal scoring skills.

It was supported by Tooleys Amusements, who set up vintage swing boats, hook a duck and side stall.
