Due to Covid regulations there were a reduced number of stalls this year and a one-way system to avoid congestion. However, there were still several stalls including cake and bake, jam, preserves & pickles, Cancer Research UK Christmas cards, Christmas Draw, Raffle, Wine lucky dip and a Chocolate Santa’s table. Children could also visit Father Christmas and receive a present from him.

Over £2,500 was raised at the event, with match funding to follow and this will go to Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK pioneers life-saving research to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

A representative from Crewe & Nantwich Cancer Research UK Group said: “We were very pleased to welcome a record breaking number of young visitors to see Santa and thank everyone for supporting our event and in turn Cancer Research UK.”
