Xmas Fair - Father Christmas and an elf helper (1)

More than £2,500 was raised at the 65th Cancer Research UK ‘Xmas Fair’ at Wistaston Memorial Hall, writes Jonathan White.

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

Due to Covid regulations there were a reduced number of stalls this year and a one-way system to avoid congestion.

However, there were still several stalls including cake and bake, jam, preserves and pickles, Cancer Research UK Christmas cards, Christmas Draw, Raffle, Wine lucky dip and a Chocolate Santa’s table.

Children could also visit Father Christmas and receive a present from him.

There will be match funding to follow and this will go to Cancer Research UK.

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

A representative from Crewe & Nantwich Cancer Research UK Group said: “We were very pleased to welcome a record breaking number of young visitors to see Santa and thank everyone for supporting our event and in turn Cancer Research UK.”
