Stall holders included Fylde coast craftspeople and artists, students, schools and community groups selling everything from jewellery, beauty products to cards, decorations and books.

Visitors, numbering 600 plus, also enjoyed a series of workshops making samples and crafts to take away.

Youngsters visited Santa Claus and enjoyed face-painting and visits from Disney’s Anna and Elsa from the film Frozen. Laura Goodinson, from Blackpool Sixth, said: “It’s a fantastic community event that has students, staff and the community working together for wonderful causes. It has got better every year and this year we raised more than £1,100 for these two wonderful charities.”
