Each of three hospices supported by Whitby’s White Lily fundraisers will have a stall at this year’s Christmas fayre for the first time.

People can go along to the event at The Stables on November 28 and chat to representatives from Zoe’s Place, St Catherine’s and Butterwick Hospice and find out more about what they do.

The fayre is going to be magical

You can also get into the festive mood by buying one of the knitted cardigans at the stand for Zoe’s Place, the Teesside-based baby’s hospice.

For £4, children can meet Santa in his grotto and there will be plenty of goodies up for grabs at the 20 various stalls, such as jewellery, make-up, wreaths and cakes, along with a chocolate tombola and raffle. West Cliff School Choir will delight fayre-goers with their carol singing.

There are no more stalls available to book now.

This year’s fundraising is well under way, with £2,000 raised by Team White Lily runners who took part in the Great North Run – and a separate £1,000 donation by Col Maud. Main organiser Lucy Bowes, who set up the group in memory of her parents David and Janet Mothersdale, said: “The fayre is going to be magical, it will be so lovely.”

Last year’s fundraising, which culminated in the glitzy White Lily Ball in May, saw the team raise a record-breaking £9,000 in one year.
