YOUNG people who took part in this year's Hillingdon FIESTA programme helped raise £123.40 for the children's charity, Make a Wish Foundation, by selling chocolates and sweets they had made as part of an enterprise course called Chocolate Factory.

More than 1,600 young joined in this year's FIESTA and took part in 63 activities, ranging from cookery classes to circus skills.

FIESTA is a programme for children and young people, aged 6-18, run by Hillingdon Council through the summer holidays.

New activities this year included pottery, golf, trampolining, chocolate-making and biking.

Frankie Evans, 11, of Hillingdon said: "It's been really good fun. There are lots of things to do."
