The event, which is being officially opened by the Mayor of Cheltenham, promises a fun day out for all the family whilst raising funds for the local hospice which cares for local people with a life limiting condition. With entry just £2.50 per adult and children under 12 going free, the day offers something for all ages at great value.

The young – and the young at heart – can enjoy children’s entertainment, games, face painting, stunt kite displays and a bouncy castle as well as live music and dance displays from special guests. And for the shoppers and bargain hunters, there will be an abundance of gifts and treats on offer - from craft, fashion and food stalls to homemade cakes, children’s toys and retro fashion. Those looking for more traditional fayre can take part in the bottle tombola, peruse the second hand book stall and enter the charity raffle. Vistors can enjoy an afternoon tea, the bar and a BBQ served in the hospice’s beautiful historic surroundings nestled in the foothills of the Cotswolds.

Renowned Cheltenham restaurant The Spice Lodge will be serving up something tasty from their Pan Asian food stall. Creed Food Service are also providing support for the event. Holly Earl, Marketing Manager added, “As part of our ongoing support for Sue Ryder, we are delighted to provide the BBQ food for the Autumn Fayre Fundraiser and look forward to hearing about how the monies raised make a real difference.”

This year the event is being sponsored by Bristol Street Motors. New Car Sales Manager, Iain Sercombe said, “We are pleased to be given the opportunity to support such an important event. Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice does a fantastic job looking after so many people. We hope as many people as possible can come and support the event on Saturday 12th. With lots of stalls and activities happening there is plenty to keep the whole family entertained.”

Elise Hoadley, Hospice Director at Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice said, “Our Autumn Fayre is one of our flag ship events where we throw open our doors and invite the local community in to hear and see more about what we do whilst having a great day and raising much needed funds for the hospice. We offer our specialist end of life care and ongoing support to local families free of charge, but need to raise £1.6 million every year to do so. It is through events like the Autumn Fayre and the generosity of local people that we can do this. We are really looking forward to welcoming lots of people through our doors for what promises to be a fun filled family day out.”
