Highest ever total raised by The Wandsworth Friends of Royal Trinity Hospice at their popular Christmas Fair.

The Wandsworth Friends of Royal Trinity Hospice Christmas Fair have presented a cheque to Trinity for £31,581. This money was raised at their annual Christmas Fair held at St Luke’s Church in November 2015. An additional £5,000 was raised through generous donations from the Saints and Sinners Club and Best of Brighton stall!

The cheque was presented to Clare Montagu, Chief Operating Officer of Royal Trinity Hospice by the Wandsworth Friends of Trinity Christmas Fair, Lucinda Harding-Rolls, Chair, Elizabeth Burke-Murphy, Treasurer and Robert French of Knight Frank, Partner and office-head, who is the main sponsor of the Christmas Fair.

Clare said

Events like the Fair help us to raise vital funds so that we can continue to provide quality end of life care for everyone who needs us, free of charge. This fantastic total will fund a specialist Trinity nurse for over seven months! We are truly grateful for the loyal support of the Wandsworth Friends’ Committee and our generous local community.

This year the Fair will again be held at St Luke’s Church, 194 Ramsden Road, London SW12 8RQ. The dates for your diary are Tuesday 15 and Wednesday 16 November 2016. The Fair will offer many stalls selling gifts, toys, books, beauty products, jewellery, fashion and pet accessories. There will also be a Silent Auction to bid for some fabulous items, a Christmas Lucky Dip and the opportunity to get a bargain at the Nearly New Stall. 

Lucinda Harding-Rolls, Chair of the Wandsworth Friends of Trinity Christmas Fair, said "The generosity of Knight Frank is very much appreciated as our main sponsor and we are delighted that this year they will again be our main sponsor. If anyone is interested in in becoming involved with this worthwhile cause in any capacity please do email us.We would love to hear from you.
