Festive treats will be on offer at a fundraising Christmas fayre in a village near Lichfield.

St Giles Hospice will benefit from the event at Whittington Village Hall on Saturday (November 20) from noon to 4pm.

As well as stalls offering festive crafts, home-made cakes and cards, jewellery, scarves, beauty products, toys, games and refreshments there will also be a chance for children to meet a real reindeer.

Carols and Christmas songs will be performed by pupils from Whittington Primary School and Sutton Coldfield Community Choir.

Admission is 50p, with all proceeds going to St Giles Hospice, which provides care for local people living with cancer and other serious illnesses.

Spokeswoman Helen Relihan said:

“Proceeds from our popular annual fayre help us to care for patients and support their families at Christmas and into the coming year.

“This is the perfect opportunity for local families to start the festive season in the spirit of giving, while picking up some wonderful gifts, decorations and crafts which can’t be found in the shops.”
