Springhill Hospice Christmas Fair 2019


Sunday 24th November 2019, 11am till 4pm

Don't miss out on one of our biggest fundraiser's of the year at our BRAND NEW venue. We'll see you there!

We are delighted to announce that our 2019 Christmas Fair will take place at our brand new location, Kingsway Park High School on Sunday 24th November. Our main priority is always the comfort of our patients and their families, along with the health and safety of our staff and supporters. 

The growth of our Christmas Fair has meant that these priorities are now being affected. As a result, we have come to the conclusion that by continuing to hold our Fair in it's current format, there is an impact on patient and visitor experience and care. For the past two years, we held the Christmas Fair, along with a series of other events, in a marquee in the Hospice grounds. The marquee has come with many challenges and risks, and although we have received corporate sponsorship towards the cost of the marquee it has come at an expense to the Hospice.
Having fully evaluated this with the Management Team and at our Income Services Committee, we are delighted to announce the plans for our 2019 Christmas Events.

This year our Christmas Fair will take place at Kingsway Park High School. The school are generously supporting Springhill and providing their facilities free of charge. We will have use of their sports hall which is a fabulous sized space just around the corner from the Hospice. As usual, we will still operate our Park and Ride facility from Gordon Riggs, and we have access to car parking at the school. We also have the added bonus of being able to set up on the Friday and Saturday.

We will of course be showcasing a range of stalls, refreshments, Santa's Grotto and a children's craft area plus much more all for FREE to you! You just need to save the date and come along!

With opening times of 11 am until 4 pm visitors will be able to able to browse stalls selling everything from cards to candles, baubles to chocolates and jewellery to jigsaws. The Fair will showcase favourites from last year plus new stalls, all offering Christmas gifts galore, tombolas, crafts, raffles, games and toys.

Why not take advantage of the FREE Park & Ride from Gordon Rigg, Kingsway, and let Springhill chauffeur you to the fair, so you can enjoy a mulled wine or two!
