Get into the festive spirit and enjoy perusing around handmade crafts and watching Christmas entertainment at Lindsey Lodge Hospice’s Christmas and Craft Fair.

Everyone of all ages is welcome to come along this Saturday, November 19 to the Redbourn Club, in Scunthorpe’s Cemetery Road, and the little ones can even meet Father Christmas.

Anne Millett, community fundraising coordinator for Lindsey Lodge, said: “We are really excited about this event because we think it will be the best Christmas fair we have ever hosted.

“We have already sold out of craft stall places- so there will be a great mix of gifts available.

“It’s a fantastic way to support local crafts people and a local charity which needs £4.80 every single minute to care for patients with life-limiting illnesses.”

There will be handmade jewellery, glassware, Christmas decorations, paintings, homeware and more.

There will also be a stall selling items created by hospice patients, including Christmas cards.

Stall holder, Karen Lloyd, from Coleby, will be selling her beautiful material wreaths, reindeer soap, and festive decorations.

She has supported the fair for around 14 years.

“I have been crafting ever since I was at school- it’s in my blood,” said Karen, whose part of the Annie Stapleton Sewing Group.

“I enjoy making items for the hospice because it’s a passion and raises funds for a cause which most people have been touched by.

“I also play in a clarinet group called Amici and we’ll be performing festive music at the craft fair too.”

The fair runs from 10am to 1pm, with admission 50p, children are free.

There is also free parking available.
