MORE than £5,350 was raised at the Thame Carnival – enough to set up a charitable trust fund.

Aided by the presence of Peter Andre, last month’s carnival attracted thousands of people and organisers have now announced the money will go back into the community.

After the trust fund has been formed, Thame clubs and charities can come forward and ask for grants to help out with community projects.

Enough money has also been raised to put on a carnival of the same size next year, with the theme of Disco Fever.

Peter Andre came to this year’s carnival for his TV show Here to Help, which is due to air on ITV2 in mid-august.
