Visitors will be offered the chance to start their Christmas shopping at The Wisdom Hospice in November. The Friends of The Wisdom Hospice are holding their annual Christmas Fair at the Hospice in High Bank, Rochester on Saturday 26th November from 10am until 2pm. There will be over 20 stalls selling a wide range of goods including jewellery, handbags, candles, soaps and cakes. The Friends’ range of Christmas cards and goods will also be on sale and there will be plenty of games to try.

Santa will be making time in his busy schedule to visit between 11am and 1pm to listen to children’s Christmas wishes and to hand out gifts. Refreshments will also be available including soup and ploughman’s lunches. Admission is 50p for adults. Children go free.

The Wisdom Hospice is the only adult hospice serving the Medway and Swale area, providing specialist palliative care to patients with life limiting conditions. The Friends of the Wisdom Hospice support this work through an annual grant to Medway Community Healthcare. The grant for the current year is £560,000. In addition the Friends make grants to Crossroads and the Marie Curie Nursing Service to provide extra support to patients and their families in their own homes.

Emma Dengate, Fundraising Co-ordinator for The Friends of The Wisdom Hospice, said “This fair will have something for everyone. This is a great day out for the whole family and you are sure to pick up a Christmas bargain or two!” Further information available from: Emma Dengate – 01634 831163
