Local counselling charity We Hear You are holding a Christmas Fair in Frome Town Hall on Saturday 1st December from 11am to 4pm.
Stalls hosted by local businesses, designers and makers will be selling a range of Christmas gifts, craft activities for children, festive refreshments and the chance to meet Santa in his grotto. Fundraising Officer Helen White says: ‘We’re looking forward to watching WHY supporter and local legend Rachel Clark switch on Frome’s Christmas lights on the 30th and continuing the festive theme the very next day with our fair!’
‘We’ll be asking people for a donation of £1 on the door and it’s £3 for children to meet Father Christmas in our specially designed grotto. Huge thanks to Wainwright Quarry in Radstock for sponsoring the grotto this year. We’d also love to hear from local school choirs who’d like to come along and sing some carols for us in half hour slots throughout the day, so please get in touch if your school choir would like to be part of the day.’
‘The impact of a life threatening diagnosis is enormous for everyone concerned, and for those who have lost loved ones, times like Christmas can be especially hard. WHY exists to support people coping with its effects and every penny raised by events like these is vital to help us reach the people who need our help. So please come along, have a lovely day and help us get our 25th anniversary year off to the best start.’
