Visitors to the South of England Showground can experience a fantastic array of Christmas gifts on Wednesday the 5thDecember, at the Friends of Sussex Hospices Christmas Fair.

Shoppers will benefit from Bond Street quality gifts at charity fair prices, all in the knowledge that it’s for a really worthwhile cause. Between 10am and 3pm, guests can feast on the magnificent Christmas atmosphere amongst friendly faces as well as a delicious light lunch at the on-site restaurant. Hosted by the Friends of Sussex Hospices, the Fair is now in its 18thyear.

“Run entirely by volunteers, the Friends of Sussex Hospices raise funds through a variety of activities; the Christmas Fair however is one of my favorite events of the year,” says Sue Renshaw, Fair Organizer. “The Showground is always so accommodating to our needs. As we continue to expand year by year, it’s important to have a large space with plenty of parking in an accessible location.”

The Fair extends a warm welcome to all members of the family. Loyal supporters return every year, along with many new guests, to shop, have lunch and to have a good catch up with friends and meet new ones. Admission is £3 and children are free.

All money raised at the Fair goes towards supporting the running costs of the hospice service providers caring for the terminally ill of Sussex and their families. Our ten hospices and two providers of hospice care at home have to raise millions of pounds every year in order to continue their wonderful work.  The beneficiaries are Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice, Demelza Hospice Care for Children, Hospice in the Weald, Leo House at Home, St Barnabas Hospice, St Catherine’s Hospice, St Michael’s Hospice, St Peter & St James Hospice, St Wilfrid’s Hospice (Chichester), St Wilfrid’s Hospice (Eastbourne), The Martlets Hospice and The Sussex Snowdrop Trust.
