A Cheltenham retirement living scheme is inviting the public to take part in its third annual Christmas market to raise money for hospice charity Sue Ryder.

Sanctuary’s Middleton House, on Pilley Lane, is inviting the public to join them for an afternoon of market stalls and afternoon tea from 2pm on Friday (24 November).

Christmas shoppers will have the opportunity to browse jewellery, bespoke knitting, crafts and textiles, as well as homemade jam and chutney, all in aid of Sue Ryder, which operates a hospice in the area.

Author Jean White will be attending the event in person and will be on hand to sign copies of her children’s book, Billy Beaver’s Adventures.

Middleton House resident Pamela Bertoni, who organised the market, said: “This is our second year of hosting the Christmas market and it’s always a great way to bring residents and the local community together for a good cause.

“The Sue Ryder day centre hospice in Leckhampton does a lot of great work and helps a number of people who live here, so we do want to help out through events like this.”

Pamela will have her own stall at the event – Bertoni Bargains – offering Christmas cards, wrapping paper, good quality clothes, gift sets and more.

Last year, the market raised £1,100 for the charity.

Sanctuary scheme service manager Nigel Potter said: “Our retirement living schemes are designed with community activities in mind and Pamela’s annual Christmas market is a fantastic example of how they can be used to bring that community together.

“I’m looking forward to having a browse, chatting with visiting shoppers and supporting a great local cause.”
