Islanders will be able to shop for Christmas gifts at a major new charity event on Saturday.

At least 18 craft stalls, face painting and festive food will be on offer at the Atlantic Hotel and Inn.

Amy Whyler-Pritchard has arranged the event in memory of her dad, Matthew Pritchard, who passed away in 2013. She thinks it’s the first big fundraiser for the Epilepsy Society in Scilly.

The event will stretch between the pub and the hotel with stalls and activities in both areas, as well as a hog roast carvery.

It will be held in two sessions, from 11am to 2pm and between 6pm and 9pm. Amy says that’s so people who work during the day can also get the chance to attend.
