A LOCAL volunteer came up with a novel idea to raise funds for charity.
Maureen Jevans took on the task of making a double-sized quilt to be given away to a lucky raffle winner for the Alzheimer's Society, based at the district council offices in High Street, Great Dunmow.
Mrs Jevans said: "It was not an easy task but I enjoy making this type of thing and it was worthwhile as we made a really good amount of cash."
In total the raffle - held in December and won by Claire Cranwell - raised an impressive �786 for the charity, which aims to support families and individuals who are living with the effects of all types of dementia.
