Bill Matthews with his Miniature Fairground Organ and monkey.
Sheltering from the rain in an alleyway between two shops is Bill Matthews. He's a lovely man and is often seen at fundraising events.
Just beneath his left had is the card slot, and you can just about see the card emerging near the handle. The cards are difficult to get now so are quite precious.
This is another picture from the Dream Weekend charity fundraiser, for ~ Dreams Come True
~, which aims to make a child's dream come true every day, and they say "No dream is too big or too small for Dreams Come True" .
The weather was awful; it was cold, wet and windy, but it didn't completely dampen spirits and a lot of people were there enjoying themselves and giving generously.
