THERE’S some cracking fun and games lined up at the Anglia Co-operative foodstore in Littleport, and all in a great cause.

The Wisbech Road store in staging a family fun day on Sunday June 17, raising funds for Young People Littleport (YPL) - a group providing educational and leisure opportunities for the community.

Visitors are welcome to go along to the event at the store between 11am and 3pm, where they can enjoy a boxing display, a dog handling demonstration, and live music.

Highlights for children will be a fancy dress competition, face painting, fairground rides, and taking a look around fire and police vehicles.

This is the second year that the store has staged a family fun day in aid of YPL. Last year’s fund raiser attracted hundreds of visitors, and raised more than £1,000.

Co-op manager Chris Wright said: “Our fun day last year was a huge success, and there will be even more attractions at this year’s event.

“We hope that a lot of people will come along and join in the fun, with every penny raised going to YPL.”
