Charity Christmas Shopping Day continues to be a great success

Jodie & Val from Jolu on Radford Street Stone, with gifts a plenty!

The club house at Baden Hall, Eccleshall, was the setting again this year for an annual Christmas shopping day.

The event, which took place on during the daytime on Wednesday 18th November, was in aid of Cancer Research UK, with all of the stalls donating a percentage of their takings and some even donating all of their profits.

Keeping us all beautiful were Sharon and Cynthia from Chantilly, High Street Stone

There was a great turnout on the day, with one trader telling me she hadn’t had her first cup of tea until 3 o clock as she’d not stopped!

Rob from Chorlton Farm Cheese, was offering some delicious tasters

There were many stalls selling everything from Specialist cheeses to ladies clothing and accessories, plants, cakes and plenty of gifts for Christmas for everyone from toddlers to grand parents.

Claire from Tylman of Stone, Granville Square, gets sales woman of the year, she got me to buy a gift for my wife while I was only browsing!

Several shops from Stone were in attendance, including Chantilly, Tylman of Stone and Jolu, and they all agreed what a success the event had been.

Della with her son Andrew, from The Little White Cottage at Slaters Village near Baldwins Gate, had ladies accessories and clothing all at very affordable prices.


The organisers Audrey Shenton and Sally Allman should be very proud of their achievements, well done ladies

The day was organised by Audrey Shenton and Sally Allman, Audrey unfortunately lost her son to cancer and since then has been fundraising for Cancer Research UK in anyway she can.

Audrey told the Gazette

“Last years event was fantastic, we raised £7,727.50, we don’t know a final figure for today yet, but we are hoping to get close to that again”.


100% of the profits were given by the ladies manning the flower stall
