The Friends of Rise Carr College, Darlington, are holding an Easter Fayre on April 5 at the college on Eldon Street.

There will be plenty of stalls and children can take along a decorated egg for an Easter egg competition, with a prize for the best egg.

The fayre runs from 10am to noon and money raised will go to the Great North Air Ambulance Service.
