Mulled wine and mince pies were the order of the day at a Body Shop party held to support British Wireless.

Trusts Officer Frances Fielding held the fundraiser at her home and 18 people went along to browse the products on offer.

There was a festive atmosphere with the nibbles and the huge array of Christmas gifts to choose from.

Nicola from the Body Shop’s At Home team demonstrated the items for sale and altogether it raised £125 for BWBF, which includes the proceeds from a lucky square raffle.

Winners each received a collection of Body Shop products.

Frances said: “Thanks to everyone who made the party a success, Jude who volunteered to help host and to everyone who came and supported British Wireless."
