The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

Over £440 was raised for the Peter­bor­ough As­so­ci­a­tion for the Blind with a gar­den day last week­end. Around 100 peo­ple turned up to Keith Richard­son’s home in Ap­s­ley Way, Longth­orpe, for his Lit­tle Puf­fers open gar­den day which for­tu­nately was adorned by sun­shine. Keith was able to show off his model rail­way with four trains on it which de­lighted the chil­dren who at­tended. “No­body wanted to go home,” he said. “Chil­dren love lit­tle trains go­ing round.” The day ran from 2pm to 5pm and also in­cluded an auc­tion­ing of cakes, with a high­est bid of £11 help­ing to raise money for char­ity. Keith, who is ap­proach­ing his 80s, has been host­ing his open gar­den day for a decade now, although this year’s event was the first since 2014 af­ter he had to can­cel last year. Keith has now been en­joy­ing his hobby for over 10 years.
