The Sara Lee Trust holds its Christmas Fair on Saturday December 12.

It takes place at St John the Evangelist Church, Pevensey Road, St Leonards, from 10.30am - 2.30pm.

There will be opportunities for Christmas shopping and a wide range of fund raising stalls, including arts and hand-crafted items for unique Christmas presents.

There is a designated children’s area and Father Christmas will be in his grotto. There is also a children’s craft area with a wide range of Christmas crafts and a children’s fancy dress competition, with judging taking place at 1pm.

Maria Gonet, from the charity, said: “It will be a great day with something for all the family.

“There will be home-made Christmas food and produce, including mulled wine, mince pies, cakes and hot and cold drinks.

“We also have health and beauty items and an amazing raffle with prizes including a luxury weekend break, a 32 inch television and a designer handbag.

“We hope people will be able to come along and support us.”

The Sara Lee Trust was set up in memory of local woman Sara Lee who died aged 32 from cancer.

It was Sara’s vision as a result of using complementary therapies during her two year battle with cancer, that a Trust be set up, to provide therapies free of charge, to people in Hastings and Rother, living through cancer and other life threatening illness.

The Trust offers a full and wide ranging programme offering patients access to complementary therapy treatments, creative arts therapy and counselling.
