Hospice connects with volunteer group for 8th annual craft fair

2nd October 2015

Lincoln, 2nd October 2015 – On Sunday, 11th October from 10:30am – 4:00pm Skellingthorpe Community Centre and Youth Hall will be bustling with local crafters. Discover unique Christmas gifts handmade by craft stalls from across the county.

Skellingthorpe Craft Fair is now in its 8th year and will once more be filled with gifts, trinkets and beautiful handcrafted items. Rosemary Pike will be attending with her beautifully handmade Stained Glass items; Mary Perridge will be exhibiting her original paintings and Mike Ellis with his handcrafted wooden gifts. Whether you want to browse or buy there is sure to be something that will catch your eye.

The event will take place at the end of Hospice Care Week to coincide with this year’s theme, connecting care. Hospice Care Week will run from the 5th – 11th October. St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice has worked with the Skellingthorpe Fundraising Group for nearly 20 years, in this time the group has raised a total of £88,000.

Ben Petts, Community Events Fundraiser for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice said:

“The Hospice connects with a diverse range of community groups, we connect care through a range of services and the Skellingthorpe Fundraising group is dedicated by organising their own events each year to raise funds for the hospice.”

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice will host a variety of stalls with a new range of Christmas cards, decorations and gifts. Guests will have the opportunity to enter a prize draw by getting their program stamped at both the Community Centre & Youth Hall. This will give guests the opportunity to win a meal for 2 at the Stone Arms in Skellingthorpe. Admission is £1.00 and all funds raised will go directly towards patient and family care across Lincolnshire.
