Celebrities flock to Chiswick's favourite fair
Stars help raise thousands for local charities
The weather couldn't have been more perfect for Chiswick’s best loved summer fair which took place last Saturday on Turnham Green.
Organised by the parish of Our Lady of Grace & St Edward, this year's fair was another resounding success raising more than £13,000 for local charities.
Aside from the obvious attractions of Colin Firth, James Cracknell, Beverly Turner and Rula Lenska who all came along to join in the fun, steel band Stardust played throughout the event providing the perfect accompaniment to great day out for all the family.
Proving a popular theme, the mini world cup football tournament was won by the defending champions from St Mary's Year 6
A number of local companies pitched in for the day with Macken Brothers and The Duke of Sussex providing the barbeque and beer tent.
Monsignor James Curry, of Our Lady of Grace and St Edward said, “The Summer Fair was once again a huge success raising a great deal of money and will enable us to make a difference to well-deserving local charities. Chiswick businesses and the community were extremely generous, for which we are sincerely grateful.”
