AROUND 200 people turned out to enjoy a tipple with a bit of shopping.

Crowds flocked to enjoy a Christmas market at The Angler’s Rest pub in Handsworth, Sheffield.

Pub regulars and new shoppers browsed stalls selling everything from cakes to cosmetics to pick up early festive gifts.

The Yuletide theme continued with plenty of traditional turkey sandwiches sold.

And the gift of giving saw more about £230 raised for Sheffield Children’s Hospital through a raffle and tombola.

It was the pub’s first Christmas market.

Manager Margaret Sharpe said: “We probably had about 200 people through the doors - it was a really good night.

“Through a raffle and tombola we raised about £230 for the Children’s Hospital and we also had about 10 different stalls here.

“There were all sorts of things for sale including cakes, things for your nails, and wine bags.”
