Christmas cheer will fill a barn next month as it opens its doors for a festive fundraising fayre in aid of a local hospice.
Organised by Veronica Levett-Scrivener, the fayre in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care, will take place in Haughley Park Barn on Thursday, November 7, from 10.30am to 4pm.
Veronica, decided to organise the fayre, which is sponsored by Atkins Thomson and Haughley Park, because she felt it was important to support others and to help ensure that the hospice was there for people in the future.
She said: “The occasion will feature a wonderfully eclectic mix of stalls to suit all budgets. From delicious homemade fudge, to unique fashion designs and home-grown produce, the fayre will be the ideal opportunity to pick up Christmas presents for the whole family.”
Stall holders will include Isabel Cators with a collection of colourful skirts, Catherine Haddon Interior Design, Ilketshall Wenslydale wool designs, Vintage Martha faux fur coats, hats and scarfs and much more.
For those wanting to use their creative talents there will also be two Christmas wreath-making workshops, one at 11am and another at 2pm.
Workshop places, which cost £35 each (£10 non-refundable deposit), will be limited so please book ahead by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Miranda McCoy, the hospice’s community fundraiser, said: “We are so grateful to Veronica for thinking of the hospice and organising this event for us. It really will be beautifully festive. There will be many fantastic stalls showcasing a variety of goods; there will be something for everyone. It will be a great opportunity to start, or perhaps even finish, your Christmas shopping. I hope as many people as possible will be able to join us.”
There is a suggested £3 donation for entry, which includes a drink, with tea, coffees and cakes are available to purchase.
