Toys needed to help Marie Curie fundraiser

The Hampstead Hospice is planning its annual event and is asking companies to donate samples to raise funds.
Publish date:

The Winter Fair was opened by Fiona Bruce last year, but was, according to Marie Curie, more like 'Acorn Antiques than Antiques Roadshow'.

This year, the fair will take place on Saturday November 26th and the celebrity guest in This Morning's Alison Cork. The charity is trying to find new items in a bid to attract more interest than the usual second-hand offering.

So those of you with samples sitting around in show-rooms or ex-display stock knocking around, why not send it over and do your bit for a good cause this Christmas?

Marie Curie Cancer Care is the leading provider of cancer care in the UK, delivering over 180,000 hours each year of care. The Hampstead hospice is one of nine centres around the UK and offers both day care to out-patients as well as in-patient services, free of charge.

The hospice requires £4 million each year, a million of which is raised through events such as the Winter Fair and so any help is greatly appreciated.

Marie Curie 'would be very grateful for anything you might be able to spare' and in return, would be happy to include website address details in the event literature.

Items can be sent for the attention of:

Natasha Sadaoui – Winter Fair,
Fundraising Manager
Marie Curie Hospice, Hampstead
11 Lyndhurst Gardens
