Festive Fun with Pilgrims Hospices

Posted on 23 October 2017

Volunteers and staff at Pilgrims Hospice Ashford are busy preparing for its annual Christmas Fair, which will be held at The Towers School, Ashford on Saturday 11th November commencing at 10.30am to 3.30pm.

You can shop till you drop with over 80 seasonal craft, gift and food stalls to choose from. With a variety of games, gifts, refreshments, a Grand Prize Draw and Santa’s Grotto, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Over 80 seasonal craft, gift and food stalls to choose from.

The hospice is pleased to introduce two new stalls this year, ‘Adopt a Teddy’, your chance to give a loveable creature a new home and a pet stall dedicated to treating your four legged friends to some scrumptious home made treats, gifts and accessories, many of which have been kindly made and donated by local companies including, Take the Lead.

Mel from Take the Lead said: “We are really happy to be supporting Pilgrims this year and we hope the treats fly of the shelf to help raise much needed funds.”

Also this year, visitors will get to meet Santa’s very special helpers including Elsa from Frozen and Beauty and the Beast who are taking time out from panto rehearsals to join in the fun.

Sandie Gillett, Community Fundraising Officer at Ashford said: “We are very excited about this years Christmas Fair and absolutely delighted with the fantastic range of stalls that we have on offer. Entry is free, so if you would like to bag yourself some festive bargains do pop along and join us.

“We need to raise £11 million pounds each year to keep providing end of life care, free of charge to the people of east Kent.”

For more information please email or call the fundraising office on 01233 504111.

Each year Pilgrims supports hundreds of local people coping with a life limiting illness and their families. The charity offers a range of services: from end of life care given on its wards, to its new Wellbeing and Social Programme supporting people after they are diagnosed to live well and stay independent.
