Parents who took to the streets in fancy dress raised £1,037 for their Pre-School.

Characters like Snow White and Pocahontas asked visitors and motorists in Burford to contribute to their street collection.

Pre-school chairman Juliet Bennett said: "It was a brilliant effort and a great response from the public."

The event was sponsored by Party Zone, of Carterton, who provided a collection

of fancy costumes for nothing.

The money is going towards the running costs of the Pre-School, which meets five days a week at their Tanners Lane building.

Parents have a target of raising £3,000 this year to help keep down session fees for youngsters.
