Fundraising is a piece of cake for St Clare stalwart Pat

DELICIOUS home-baked cakes and lovingly made jams and preserves will be bringing a quintessentially British touch to the St Clare Hospice annual May Fayre on Saturday, May 10.
More than 10 stallholders will be selling their wares to raise funds for the Hastingwood-based Hospice at the family-friendly event organised by St Clare stalwart Pat Prior.
In addition to the wholesome goodies from Pat’s own kitchen, there will be traditional handicrafts, such as knitwear, linens and cushions, on sale along with children’s toys and games, plants, two tombolas and a raffle.
There will also be a circus skills workshop for the young and young at heart plus refreshments for visitors to enjoy in between browsing the stalls.
Pat, who has been a supporter of St Clare since her late husband, Bill, was cared for at the Hospice more than a decade ago, said: “Last year, we welcomed more than 200 visitors to the Hospice for the May Fayre, helping raise in excess of £1,500, which is enough to cover the weekly cost of providing all of the patients with a wonderful choice of freshly prepared home-cooked meals.
“We are hoping for an even bigger turnout next Saturday so please come along and join us. There will be plenty of tasty treats to take home to enjoy!”
The May Fayre opens to the public at 11am and admission is £1 (50p for children). For more information, call St Clare community fundraiser James Barber on 01279 773750 or email [email protected]
