Craft fair for Marie Curie


A wide range of local crafters will be present at a Charity Craft Fair this Saturday in Hillsborough Village Centre from 11am to 4pm to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Admission to this family event is free.

The Mayor of Lisburn, Councillor Andrew Ewing, speaking about the craft fair said: “I am absolutely delighted that a number of stallholders will be displaying their goods and I hope that residents will come along and support this event. A lot of organisation has gone in to this event by members of my Charity Committee and I would like to thank everyone involved.

“I would like to thank local bakeries Jeffers, Country Kitchen, Spences, Windsor, Adairs and Mackeys for donating wheaten bread, traybakes and scones that will be sold with all proceeds going to Marie Curie. Tea and coffee will also be available to purchase as well as soup over lunchtime.

“A raffle will also take place during the event with all the prizes being donated by the stall-holders and Jeffers bakery: again all proceeds will be going to Marie Curie.”
