A Christmas market featuring work by local craftspeople next Friday aims to raise money for the Macmillan cancer charity.

It has been organised by Linda Holden and will run from 6pm onwards on Friday, November 22, at Mytholmroyd Community Centre.

Linda says that a range of craft stalls will be there and the stallholders will be donating ten per cent of their profits on the night to Macmillan.

“The market is free to enter and is open to all, so please come along and we will have a fantastic night. The bar is open and mince pies and mulled wine will be available.

“It’s an indoor Christmas market and craft fair with stallholders coming from the Hebden Bridge, Todmorden and Mytholmroyd areas.

“Between them they will be selling a wide range of goods which would make ideal Christmas presents, including clothes, jewellery, bags, gift sets, wooden gifts and crafts. There’s a range of stalls.

“They are all local people and will be raising money for Macmillan,” she said.

Linda said two similar events had been held at the Dusty Miller in Mytholmroyd earlier this year and had proved very popular indeed.

The move to the centre was simply to increase the size of the Christmas event, to fit in more stalls.

“The events at the Dusty Miller went very well and at this event we are having more stalls, by popular demand,” she said.

In January Linda is taking part in a Mount Kilimanjaro climb for Macmillan, and to take part in that has been given a lot of support from local shops and clubs, she said.

Macmillan cancer support is a source of support helping with all the things people affected by cancer want and need - patients, carers, families and communities.

It also funds nurses and other specialist health care professionals and builds cancer care centres.
