Cakes, crafts and chocolate treats will be on offer at Weston Hospicecare’s Easter fair on Saturday.

The free event will take place at the Boulevard United Reformed Church Hall in Waterloo Street from 10am until noon, and will feature a range of stalls and games for visitors to enjoy.

A team of young volunteers from the 2nd Weston Boys Brigade will help man the stalls to ensure money raised can go towards the hospice’s work supporting people with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

Stalls will sell items including jigsaws, books, refreshments and homemade cakes, while there will also be a raffle with some indulgent Easter hampers on offer to the winners.

A spokesman said: “Whether you’re shopping for a bargain, fancy a flutter in our raffle, or just want to pop in for a cup of tea and a cake, the event will have what you’re looking for – and promises to be a lot of fun, too.”
