Join us at our Christmas fairs this winter

There will be mince pies, festive stalls, children's crafts... and even a visit from Santa!

St Ann’s will be holding two Christmas fairs this festive season to raise funds to support our patients and their families.

Everyone is welcome at the fairs, which promise to be a real feast of family fun. There will be cakes and crafts, facepainting, tombolas… and a visit from Santa too.

The first fair of the holiday season will be held on Saturday 24th November from 12noon to 3pm at the St Ann’s Hospice site in Little Hulton. Highlights will include festive entertainment, Santa’s Grotto, festive stalls, children’s crafts, tombola, raffles, and plenty of refreshments for visitors to enjoy.

On Sunday 25th November from 12noon to 3pm, the fun will move to Heald Green Village Hall, including a range of festive stalls, Santa’s Grotto, mince pies and mulled wine, and other entertainment suitable for the whole family.

The St Ann’s Christmas fairs have been a highlight of our annual fundraising calendar for many years, and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone who comes to the hospice sites to join us. There are lots of bargains to be had in time for Christmas, and Santa will be there too, so you can meet him and let him know what you are hoping for this Christmas.
As well as a fun afternoon, every penny raised will help us to provide our world-class care to local patients and their families, so we’re hoping as many people from our local communities as possible will come along. Eamonn O'Neal, Chief Executive

It is just £1 entry for adults at both fairs, with accompanied children free.
