Radio 2 star Ken Bruce will officially open a church’s Christmas market tomorrow morning.

Ken will officially open St John’s Church Christmas market at 10am on Saturday, December 2.

Running until noon, the church on Monk’s Rise will offer a festive array of cakes and coffees, gift stalls, children’s games, Christmas hampers, a raffle and breakfast butties.

Children from St John’s Church of England School and Homerswood Primary School will put on a carol performance.

Ken, who presents the Ken Bruce Show, is not the only celebrity to attend, as Father Christmas himself will also be putting in an appearance.

All proceeds from the event, including a donation from the church, will go towards Thomley Hall Activity Centre in Buckinghamshire, which supports people with disabilities.

Ken, whose son is autistic, is a patron of the centre and is an active campaigner for autism.

Free parking can be found at Monk’s Walk School and the cricket club.

Visitors can donate £1 at the door towards the cause.
