Gift fair aims to help raise charity funds

A Christmas gift fair is set offer some winter cheer and raise funds to help adults with learning disabilities.

The Norfolk Christmas Fair in aid of Thornage Hall is taking place at The Octagon Barn, Little Plumstead on Thursday, November 26 from 9am – 3pm.

The charity event will welcome more than 50 different designers and craftsmen selling a range of gifts, from luxury leather handbags and Emma Bridgewater pottery to silk ties, Rococo chocolates and sensational fruit liqueurs.

There will also be 30 new stalls this year, including Monica Vinader, an award winning international jeweller based at Holkham, Troy London's luxury country clothing as well as Ruff and Tumble's brilliant towelling drying coats for dogs.

A pop up café by 'Back to the Garden,' the organic food store and restaurant based outside Holt, will also keep busy shoppers fuelled with coffee, cakes and delicious lunches. As always, many of the very special products created at Thornage Hall will also be on sale.

Entrance to the event is £5.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the expansion of Thornage Hall's supported living accommodation for adults with learning disabilities. A new activity room offering a variety of arts, crafts and IT will be built to provide space for both residential and day tenants to socialise and spend time together.
