Singer Clare Dowling and percussionist Eryl Whiteley had customers boogying in the aisles during today’s (Friday’s) charity event.

Miss Dowling, from Holmfirth, said: “We will be contributing some of our earnings today to Children in Need.

“We have been invited to play in the market by Wakefield Council to help with their Children in Need event.

“It’s been really positive. Everybody has been enjoying themselves, smiling and we’ve seen some people boogying.

“We’ve sung Happy Birthday to one of the traders (Pauline Feather).

Miss Feather, of Feathers Confectionary, was one of many who made cakes for the bake sale run by market liaison officer Hayley Macdonald.

Deborah and Lauren Venables, from the outdoor fruit stall, also made cake. They also wore onesies while they worked as did stylists Dawn Cowling and Sam Gelder from Hair Design.
