A CHRISTMAS fair is being held at Oswestry's Memorial Hall in aid of the Veteran’s Appeal at Gobowen’s Orthopaedic Hospital.

Jo Lewis is organising the event on Friday, November 29 from 1-5pm, and has spent time fundraising for the appeal at the hospital recently by selling jewellery, and holding a guess the teddy and guess the amount of sweets in a jar competitions.

There will be refreshments from £1.50, with a raffle and more than 20 stalls.

Money raised will go towards the new unit being built for veterans who need help.

Jo said: “I would like to say a huge thank you for the generosity of local businesses that have kindly donated raffle prizes.

“I would also like to thank friends, colleagues and volunteers for giving their time and effort to help organise this event.

“I have been overwhelmed by how local people working together and supporting each other can achieve creating this specialised unit.”
