The annual Whittlebury charity shopping fair will take place on Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th September at The Orangery and Pavilion, Whittlebury Park. This year the fair will be raising funds for Child Bereavement UK, Helen and Douglas House, Oxford and Macmillian, Northampton.

Child Bereavement UK support families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement. The charity's newly opened centre in Milton Keynes provides a key local service where advice can be sought and support given for as long as is needed.

Helen and Douglas house, based in Oxford cares for terminally ill children, young adults and their families through exceptional hospice care.

Macmillian is a national charity but in Northamptonshire they want to ensure no one faces cancer alone and provide practical, medical, emotional and financial support.

Over 65 stall holders from all over the country will come to the fair for the two days selling a huge array of items from clothes, homewares, gifts, food, toys, gardening accessories, personalised stationary, jewellery and much more.

Fair founder Sam Satchell said 'we are delighted to help raise funds for these wonderful charities who support many people locally. Every penny we raise goes direct to the charities as the venue is very generously donated by Jeff and Carol Sargent and all costs are covered by our kind sponsors Knight Frank, Be Upstanding Marquees, Nicholson's, Heaven and Stubbs, Bay Tree Cottage, Interior Fashion, Haggerty and The Cardus School.
