SHOPPERS looking for special Christmas gifts packed Amberley Parish Rooms for Cotswold Care Hospice's Autumn fete.

Hundreds turned out for the fete which featured a range of handmade gifts from jewellery to soap to Christmas decorations and cards.

Organisers hope the event raised more than £3,000 for the hospice.

"We had a fantastic turn-out. We were thrilled with the high standard of stallholders," said Jennifer Green, head of fundraising at Cotswold Care Hospice. "There was a great range of lovely gifts on offer with the majority of them made locally."

Alice Petch, from Stroud, volunteered in the kitchen, making bacon rolls and coffee.

She said: "I helped, as Cotswold Care Hospice helped my mum and my family so much when my mum was ill and provided us all with much needed support."
