Macmillan Christmas Shopping Fair Aiming for a Record Breaking Year.


26th September 2019

The highly popular Macmillan Christmas Shopping Fair, which is being held on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th November at Kingston Maurward College, is aiming for a record breaking year exceeding last year’s total of £34,000.

When asked why she felt the Fair was so popular with shoppers, Committee Chairman Rose Joly commented “The Christmas Shopping Fair has become a firm favourite with people seeking quality, unusual or discerning gifts that cannot be found on the High Street.  Each year we feature nearly fifty stalls who are handpicked by us to ensure a wonderful choice and variety for shoppers looking for unique Christmas presents for their loved ones.  This year stalls will include luxury clothing, jewellery and accessories, children’s toys, quality food and items for the house and garden.”

She continued “In addition the venue at Kingston Maurward is a perfect location as it is easily accessible and enjoys excellent parking yet still provides the air of a Country Home with its beautifully proportioned rooms and character features.”

Chrissie Wathen-Neal, Macmillan Fundraising Manager for Dorset says; ‘The Macmillan Christmas Fair is now an established event in the county diary and is so well supported by the local community.  As a charity we couldn’t do what we do without our wonderful volunteers and my thanks go to the committee members who organise the fair. 15 people a day will receive a cancer diagnosis in Dorset and the money that is raised at the event will help make a difference to those people living with cancer in Dorset”.

The fair is Open on Saturday 16th November from 10am until 4pm and on Sunday 17th November from 10am until 3.30pm.  Admission is £5 per person.
