Boothtown turned out in force at a family fun day to raise funds for a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Disney World for the children of Emily Phillips.

Hundreds of people attended the event at the Grantham Road Recreational Ground, which featured stalls, bouncy castles, food and entertainment.

Bryony, 8, and Oliver, 5, will travel to Florida later this month with their grandparents, and the money raised at the event will go towards treats for the children during the holiday.

Their mum Emily died in a collision near her home while travelling along Boothtown Road in January.
