Shoppers can pick up a bargain while helping a cancer charity at an Easter shopping fair in Mexborough.

The annual event will be hosted at the Pastures Lodge and visitors can expect to see a variety of stalls selling a range of goods including cakes, flowers, jewellery, accessories, cards and beauty products.

Proceeds will benefit the Aurora Centre, which offers morale boost beauty and well-being tips to cancer patients at Montagu Hospital, Doncaster Royal Infirmary and Bassetlaw Hospital.

Charity volunteer Maureen Sampson said: “We hope that residents of Mexborough and surrounding areas as well as the cancer patients who use the services of Aurora will come along with their friends and family to support this event.

“All proceeds will help our local charity to continue to provide free beauty and wellbeing treatments to men and women affected by cancer.

“Everyone is welcome to come along to the Aurora Wellbeing Centre located to the rear of Montagu Hospital to be pampered for a suggested donation which supports the charity.”

It will be held on Sunday, April 20, from noon to 4pm.

Entry is £1 for adults which includes refreshments. Children go free. Some stalls are still available, for more information ring 03000 111 202.
