Xmas Fair - Father Christmas and helper (2)

The 62nd Cancer Research UK Xmas Fair at Wistaston Memorial Hall has helped raise more than £3,700, writes Jonathan White.

The event was organised by the Crewe & Nantwich Cancer Research UK Group.

There were numerous stalls with cakes, chutneys, cheese& pickles, sweets, games, chocolate Santas, books, handbags, scarves, jewellery, toiletries, cards, candles, collectables, plants, a wine tombola, and a teddy tombola.

A tea room served drinks and snacks.

Children were able to visit Father Christmas and receive a present from him.

More than £3,700 was raised at the event, which will go to Cancer Research UK.

Cancer Research UK pioneers life-saving research to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

John Pass, committee chairman, said: “A beautiful November day brought out record numbers to raise money for the Crewe & Nantwich Cancer Research UK Group.

“We give a big thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors and for everyone who came to the event.

“The support has been overwhelming for the 62 years we have held the event.

“It is amazing that one event has been so vibrant for such a period of time – long may it continue.”
