Cancer Research Christmas Fundraiser In Old Town This Evening

christmas fair tregarthens 2013Locally made jewellery and craft items, teddies and food are on offer tonight at Cancer Research UK’s Christmas fundraiser.

And while the Scilly Sirens female choir and the Blue Sky Jazz Band return but this year, there’s a new venue for the popular event.

It’s the first time the Old Town Inn has hosted the fundraiser.

The event started at St Mary’s Hall and in recent years has been held at Tregarthen’s.

Organiser Beryl Read doesn’t think that relocating it away from Hugh Town will affect turnout and there could be an increase in numbers because of easier vehicle access and the larger car park available.

The three-hour event starts at 6pm and Beryl hopes they can match or exceed 2014’s cash total of £550 for the charity.
