The third annual Fenland Women's Festival was held on Saturday, March 9, to celebrate International Women's Day.

There was lots of fun to be had at St Peter's Church Hall, in Wisbech, as women from across the Fenlands came together to celebrate their talent and achievement.

£200 was raised for Wisbech Foodbank and the Swan Project in Downham Market, as well as the domestic abuse charity Refuge.

Funds were raised from a raffle, which was supported by John's Fruit and Veg Shop, Wisbech Floral Centre and Morrisons, as well as a bookstall and a homemade cake sale.
