Christmas event will raise money for a Doncaster charity that helps people with cancer
A Doncaster woman is organising a Christmas event which will fundraise for a charity who care for people with cancer.
Last Christmas was spent in a lockdown so many of the traditional festive events were unable to go ahead.
But this year Charlotte Louise Sharpe is on a mission to bring some Christmas magic back to Doncaster.
She is organising a market and grotto at the Queens Road Design Centre in Wheatley.
Charlotte, aged 24, from Wheatley, said: “There are going to be lots of stalls with handmade gifts, crystals, baked goods and much more all from local businesses.
“It’s going to be a great opportunity for us all to come together and raise money for a great cause.”
All profits are going towards Firefly - a Doncaster based charity who care for people with cancer.
“Firefly is close to my heart because they helped my granddad - they were amazing with him,” she said.
“We want to raise as much money as possible for them.”
As well as stalls there will be a grotto and a photographer to snap festive shots.
“Lots of children missed out last year,” Charlotte said.
“Including my own - I had a set of twins during lockdown.
“I hope we can create special memories for them this year.”
There will be a large raffle with prizes donated from local businesses.
The Christmas event will be on December 12 from 3pm to 8pm.
Tickets are £2.50 and can be booked in advance - for more information click here.
