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.
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!
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.
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.
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”.
