CAMILLA Dallerup, star of BBC's Strictly Come Dancing, lit up children's faces at Lister Hospital's fundraising event last week.

The dancer signed autographs and even brought along some sparkly dresses she wore on the popular television show for the children to look at.

Other guests included Father Christmas, a brass band, performing acrobats, Chiltern Radio's Thunder Crew and an Anglia Television crew.

Paradise Park took along a real reindeer, a barn owl and a snake.

Over £2,000 was raised by a raffle to fund new equipment for the children's ward which will help transport youngsters to and from wards.

Lister's fundraiser Suzanne Roynon said: "It was fantastic, lots of people came and it was more like winter wonderland. You should have seen the children's faces when they saw Father Christmas coming up the path with his reindeer.
