Stallholders paid £10 to set up shop at the event.

Scores of stalls packed the store’s car park on Friday, November 30 with stallholders each paying £10 to peddle their festive wares.

On hand to entertain visitors were birds of prey from the Yorkshire Owl and Rescue, firefighters from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue, the Donut Van and Father Christmas himself.

Proceeds raised will go to Cancer Research, Diabetes UK and the British Heart Foundation.
