A youth charity's biggest ever event has raised thousands to help it continue its work to empower young people to realise their potential.
Families came together to raise money for Inspire and enjoyed live music, face painting and a BBQ at the former Holywells High School.
The day raised over £2,000, with money raised going to Inspire which helps young people feel empowered and realise their potential.
Local artists performed at the event including Roma, Ruby Ambrose and Adam Thomas.
Mr Thomas said: "What a great opportunity to showcase the talent we have locally."
Community fundraiser Katiuska Torres-Watling said: "As a charity, we wanted to offer a free event for people of all ages to come and have a good time.
"There's so much individuality in our local area, including some wonderful organisations, who make this town what it is, so we need to celebrate it.
