A GOLF club in Bewdley is hosting a summer craft fair to raise money for Acorns Children's Hospice.

The family-friendly free event will bring a range of exhibitors, including local crafters and beauty specialists, to Little Lakes Golf Club off Lye Head Road on Saturday, May 4 from 12pm to 5pm.

There will also be a tombola stand, with proceeds going directly to Acorns Hospice - the chosen charity for both the Men's and Ladies' captains at Little Lakes.

Ladies' captain Sarah Laker-Smith said: "This is our first ever summer craft fair, so it made sense to host it in aid of our chosen charity for this year.

"Acorns is a fantastic organisation, which provides invaluable support for children and their families across Worcestershire.

"We are excited by the range of craft stalls we will have on site, and look forward to welcoming visitors to raise funds for the vital work Acorns carries out."

The craft fair is part of a larger open day, which will also feature face-painting, entertainment and a birds of prey display from the Falconry Centre.

Mel Hall, area fundraiser at Acorns Children’s Hospice, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Little Lakes Golf Club has chosen Acorns as its charity of the year, and using its first craft fair to raise funds for our work.

"I’m sure it will be a brilliant day, and the money raised will go towards supporting our hospices in the region.

"We rely on fundraising to continue our vital care, so we’re really grateful for the club’s generosity.”

In the past year Acorns has provided care to more than 800 children and 1,000 families, including those who are bereaved.
