Giant Christmas Market
THE GIANT indoor Christmas Charity Market is to be held in Petersfield Festival Hall on Saturday, December 2nd with 70 stalls. This traditional family-run event is in aid of Portsmouth Hospitals Rocky Appeal for the £2.4million digital keyhole surgery Da Vinci Robot. The technology is already in place and in use to the benefit of patients, but the remainder of the fund is needed to finish paying for the machine at the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham.
Other charities will also be running fundraising stalls at the market for local good causes including the Rosemary Foundation hospice at home nurses and Petersfield Musical Festival.
Traders and craftspeople from across the area will be supporting the event with collectables, bric-a-brac, toys, greetings cards and silver jewellery. Christmas gifts, cakes, marmalade, jams and chutneys will also be on sale together with handbags, games, knitted doll’s clothes and books.
A Rocky Appeal raffle is to be held in the foyer and refreshments will be served in the Rose Room. Admission to the market is free and is open 9.30am to 3pm. Stall bookings on 01730 264802.
