Calling all Oxfordshire Christmas lovers...

Christmas? Not already, I hear you cry! But bear with us, here's a fantastic early local Christmas Fair for a couple of great causes.

On Tuesday 15 October from 9.30am to 4pm, wonderful Charlbury resident Sue will be opening up her beautiful Oxfordshire home to welcome you to browse an array of unique and unusual stalls, from handmade Italian leather belts to bridge in a box, silver and rose gold jewellery to bamboo socks, scarves and watches, coffee and artisan bread to luxury woollen cosy-ups… and much more besides.

All proceeds will go towards the work of SpecialEffect and Oxfordshire charity ROSY (Respite Nursing for Oxfordshire’s Sick Youngsters). It’s £5 entry, and we’d love to see you at Long Meadow, Church Street, Charlbury, OX7 3PP (right next door to The Bell).

We’re a big fan of the amazing work of ROSY and their work resonates with ours in many ways. Here’s more about them in a parent’s words:

“No parent expects to become the parent of a disabled child. There are no manuals, books, or experts on parenting a child with lots of medical needs. You end up in a world that’s scary and lonely, where the rules are unknown and you don't know where to turn for help and advice. Having ROSY in our life helps. Having regular breaks from the responsibility of caring for our gorgeous son allows us to recharge our batteries and makes us better carers. It also allows us time to do some of the things that are really difficult when you've got to consider taking a child in a wheelchair.”

For more information about the Christmas Fair, email alison@specialeffect.org.uk
