Festive cheer in Honiton.

Festive cheer will be in good supply as Honiton Hospital League of Friends hosts its Christmas fair.

The event, which is being held at Honiton Baptist Church, takes place on Saturday (December 7), from 10am until 4pm.

Visitors will be treated to entertainment from Honiton Town Band and Honiton Twirlstars, to name a few.

There will be stalls, a tombola, raffle, hand-made goods, and hospital staff will once again be making a selection of delicious cakes, which proved to be very popular when the League of Friends held its summer fair.

The group’s secretary, Graham Yates, said: “It is going to be a fun day and will be something for the community to join in.”

The League of Friends is currently fundraising to purchase and install television sets with headphones for each bed on the medical ward.

Father Christmas will be making an appearance on the day.

Honiton Hospital League of Friends is also holding a silent auction – the lucky winners will be announced during the Christmas fair at 4pm.

Prizes up for grabs include a Liverpool Football Club stadium and museum tour, Exeter Football Club family tickets, Escot family tickets, Exeter Chiefs tickets, entry for two to Clip ’n Climb and a Manchester United player autograph.

Bidding sheets are available at the League of Friends shop at Honiton Hospital. Alternatively email honitonhospitalfriends@gmail.com
