HALTON Fun Fest has been hailed a great success.

The charity event featuring live acts at Runcorn Town Park on July 26 raised vital finds for Halton Haven.

Hospice events manager Ciaran Clotworthy said: "I would like to thank everyone who contributed to making this event a huge success, from the volunteers who gave up their time to everyone who turned up to support the hospice.

"We really do appreciate it."

Acts included Jess Jones, The Amigos, The Sonic Revolvers and Little Jo and the jumping flea.
