Between 10am – 2pm on Saturday 23rd November, Age UK Horsham District will be hosting their popular annual Christmas Fayre at their Lavinia House premises situated behind the Drill Hall on Denne Road.
Age UK Horsham District will be serving soup and rolls for lunch and will have a variety of stalls selling a range of Christmas gifts and are offering tables for £10 or £15 to local crafters who wish to come and sell their own goods on the day.
There will also be teas, coffees, cold drinks with cakes and savoury snacks served all day. Entry is free and all day parking is available for just £1.
Age UK Horsham District has recently launched their ‘Spread The Warmth’ campaign that looks to support older people during the winter months. Many of these services are completely free and prevent the harmful effects of cold weather escalating.
It is estimated that cold homes cost the NHS and UK tax payer £1.36 billion in England alone each year. Age UK Horsham District offer solutions that can reduce the strain on these local services. Money raised at the Christmas Fayre will help these services continue. For more information on the Spread The Warmth campaign, visit their website www.ageukhorshamdistrict.org.uk.
Age UK Horsham District will be keeping Lavinia House open on Christmas Day and inviting older people who would otherwise be alone to join them for Christmas dinner, games, entertainment and gifts.
