The 63rd Cancer Research UK 'Xmas Fair’ took place at Wistaston Memorial Hall, Church Lane, Wistaston on Saturday 17th November 2018. This annual event was organised by the Crewe & Nantwich Cancer Research UK Group.
There were numerous stalls with cakes, chutneys, cheese & pickles, sweets, chocolate Santas, books, handbags, scarves, jewellery, toiletries, cards, candles, plants, a wine tombola, a teddy tombola and Christmas themed games. A tea room served drinks and snacks. Children were able to visit Father Christmas and receive a present from him.
Over £3,500 was raised at the event, which will go to Cancer Research UK: http://www.cancerresearchuk.org . Cancer Research UK pioneers life-saving research to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
John Pass, Committee Chairman, said, “The support has been overwhelming for the sixty-three years we have held the event. It is amazing that one event has been so vibrant for such a period of time and long may it continue. We give a big thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors and for everyone who came to the event.”
