Cambs Times annual charity fair looks set to be a real winner

THE fourth annual Cambs Times and Oliver Cromwell Hotel Charity Fair will take place on Saturday November 27 from 11am to 4pm.

It is the first time the event will have been held on a Saturday and it will follow the big switch-on of the town’s Christmas lights tonight.

It is a big chance for organisations to boost their charity fundraising and all the stops are being pulled out to make it the best yet.

Always keen to lend massive support to the event, hotelier Rob Skoulding will provide a running hot buffet for visitors and he is making both reception rooms available for stalls.

All the tables for the charity fair have now been snapped up.

We are pleased to welcome back regulars including the Friends of Doddington Hospital, RSPB and March and District Lions and look forward to meeting new organisations including Friends of Newton Church and Barnados. We also have the RSPCA, Fenland Mind, St John’s Church craft group, MS, and Facet. One surprise addition has been the machine knitting club who will make a donation from the day to charity.

A special attraction this year is a table for the Hearing Dogs, who will be bringing along a special puppy who is currently training.
