Darlington Lions Club Christmas Craft Fair

Darlington Lions Club is all set to hold a Christmas Craft Fair in aid of our Hospice.

Lots of fun at last year’s
Darlington Lions Club Craft Fair!

The Christmas Craft Fair will take place at Blackwell Grange Hotel on Sunday 23rd November, and will include 30 stalls offering an array of hand-made craft items, jewellery, artwork and gifts and a wonderful Christmas tombola.

All proceeds from the event will contribute towards the day-to-day running of St Teresa’s Hospice, including our Day Hospice Service, which has recently been expanded to include “Choices”, a specially-designed 12 week programme offered to patients on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

The aim of this programme is to ensure that the Hospice offers a range of flexible services relevant to patients’ needs. While the project is still in an early stage, feedback from service users has been very positive. Josie, a Day Hospice guest, said “I found the clinic really helpful. I’ve received physiotherapy, acupuncture and aromatherapy. I’d never tried these before, but I found the treatments really relaxing and very helpful.”

Other comments have included: “My visit was extremely uplifting, it is the highlight of my week, I look forward to it and would be lost without it”, and “The best part is meeting new people. The staff are very friendly, very caring and good listeners. The physio helps you to become more mobile and more confident, and it also gives my husband a day's break, he deserves it.”

Darlington Lions Club President, Pat de Martino, said: “Darlington Lions Club is pleased to be supporting such a worthy cause. Please come along and support this event

The Christmas Craft Fair starts at 10:00am and will run until 4:00pm. Entry is just £2 and children go free. For more information please contact Darlington Lions Club on 0845 833 9874.
