Craft fairies are showcasing their talents and hoping to sprinkle magic on a leading children’s charity.
The Felixstowe Craft Fairies consist of Glenny Stone, daughter Emily Thompson, her husband, Paul Thompson, and Glenny’s other daughter, Abi Wilkinson.
The creative quartet are organising an Easter fair and entry is by donation, with contributions going to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
The charity supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions and one of its hospices is The Treehouse, in Ipswich.
“We chose EACH because of the amazing work of its staff and volunteers, helping children and families who could be going through very painful and traumatic times,” said Glenny.
“It’s there for them with love and support as long as they need it and works tirelessly for our community.
“We often visit the EACH shop in Felixstowe, too.
“It’s great for all sorts of treasures. The clothing and general stock is always well displayed and of a high quality and the staff are friendly and helpful.”
This year’s craft fair is taking place at Felixstowe Leisure Centre between 10am and 4pm on Easter Sunday, 9th April.
Skilled crafters from across the region are attending and there will be stalls selling jewellery, cakes, fused glass, ceramics, upcycled lighting, flower decorations and African crafts.
Visitors will be able to visit a face painting and tattoo stall and buy crafting materials, terrariums, items produced via woodturning and Tropic Skincare products.
Other charities to have benefitted previously include Riding for the Disabled, the RSPCA, Ipswich Special Care Baby Unit and Old Felixstowe Nursery.
