Chairman of the Andover Branch of the Athritis Research Campaign held a Wine and Mince Pie Party in Winchester Gardens to raise funds.
"ARC get no money from Government, but their work helps many people who suffer from arthritis. They have put £1m into Southampton Hospital locally. ARC does valuable work on pain control, and is doing more and more for children who suffer from arthritis."
Area Appeals Manager John Mason was at the Party, with local MP Sir George Young and his grand-daughter Phoebe.
