The Martlets Hospice in Hove is preparing for its annual Christmas fair.

Supporters are being invited to turn out next Saturday (14 November), from 10.30am to 3.30pm.

The Martlets said: “There will be a variety of stalls selling all sorts of goodies for Christmas, as well as the usual favourites – cards, decorations, calendars and diaries.”

Eve Collibs, head of retail for the Martlets, said: “The Christmas Fair is always an excellent way for local people to support their local hospice and this year will be our biggest Christmas fair yet.

“In addition to our usual stalls and refreshments stands, there will be the chance to try a complementary therapy session, children can get their face painted – and to help get us in the Christmas spirit, hot chestnuts will be roasting outside, while the Martlets Hospice Choir, Good Vibrations, are performing at 11.30am and 1pm.”

The funds raised will help the Martlets Hospice provide end-of-life care to adults who are affected by terminal and life-limiting illness, as well as caring for their families and loved ones.

The hospice receives less than a third of its funding from the government. It needs to raise £11,000 a day to help people who are dying to do so with dignity and in as calm and peaceful a way as possible.

The hospice is in Wayfield Avenue, Hove. Anyone with any questions about the fair can call 01273 721188.
