A MEGA fun day is being staged to raise cash for Cancer Research today.

Youngsters can enjoy unlimited fun on the bouncy castles and slides for just a fiver at the fun day and craft fair in Little Clacton.

The event takes place at the late-riser car boot site on London Road.

Michelle Allwright has been staging the fun days for three years.

She said: "This is our third year now and we try to do three a year. It's £5 for a wristband for the children to go on all the bouncy castles, and parents and grandparents come in for free.

"Normally we have a really good turn-out and last time we raised about £1,300 for Cancer Research."

"I've got eight-year-old twins and really enjoy organising it."

Other attractions, including go-karts, zorb balls, trampolines, face-painting and a food court, cost extra.

Michelle said: "You can spend £5 and not a penny more and have a great day out or you can spend a bit more."

The fun runs from 11am to 5pm.
