Around 150 people went to the event, at Morton Manor, which raised around £2,500 in aid of the Association of Community Complementary Therapists (ACCT).

Maggie Logan, secretary of the ACCT, said it had been a fantastic day and better than previous ones.

“We had lots of different exhibitors,” she said. “Magical Mel [Cumbria’s resident ‘fairy’] sprinkled fairy dust all over my hair and I’m still finding it round the house!”

There were 26 stalls on the day with exhibitors coming from all over the county as well as Haltwhistle, Lancashire and Harrogate. The exhibitors included a face reader, chiropractor, drumming circle, bio-energy healer and nutritionist. The mystery prize on offer was revealed as a family day out at Walby Farm Park.

Psychic Amanda Tooke said: “The Morton Manor event is my favourite event. It’s got a really nice energy about it.”

Amanda gave a talk on ‘Manifesting with your Angel’ and doing angel readings, which guide people on how to move forward positively in life.”

The ACCT provides reduced cost therapy treatments from their centre in Spencer Street, Carlisle, and outreach events. Therapies are offered at lower rates for people on benefits or low incomes, as well as members of voluntary and self-help groups. The funds will go towards helping to subsidise these treatments as well as paying rent for the centre.
