Janet Crosslin, 68, of Auckland Road, Ilford, held her annual summer plant sale at The Drive Methodist Church, Ilford, for charity Women’s World Day of Prayer.

Mrs Crosslin, who has been putting on the event for 31 years, sold plants grown by herself, a selection of cakes, jams and bric-a-brac to visitors, raising about £100 for the charity.

Thunder and lightning did not stop the passionate fundraiser as she sold perennial’s and cupcakes with fellow charity committee members.

Mrs Crosslin said: “We donate to Christian women all over the world and It funds education programmes and aids programmes.”

She added: “It was a miracle the day went ahead at all because of the thunder and rain - it was absolutely bolting down.”
