Massive success as Sunday Market raises £1,000 for children’s charity

THERE were crafts, goodies and gifts galore as a first ever charity Sunday Market at the Civic Hall in Uppermill raised more than £1,000 for The Samantha Jones Trust.

The Civic Hall was packed with stalls and guests for the first Sunday Market

The monthly markets launched in September and aim to raise funds for the children’s leukaemia charity, based in Delph, with their regular events.

There is plenty on offer for visitors from more than 50 stalls including handmade craft stalls, food produce, cosmetics and body products, art work, pet stalls and clothes.

There was also a tombola, cake staff, refreshments, face painting and children’s craft activities, a photo booth, and book signing. Profits from the kitchen and the two charity stalls go directly to the charity.

Natalie, TSJT Secretary, said: “We were very happy with the first Uppermill Market as we had fantastic footfall and it was a well attended event.

“We heard lots of positive feedback from the public, who were delighted to attend a different market selling a wide variety of products from stall holders local to Saddleworth and Oldham.

“Our fundraising directly goes towards helping children throughout the north west so life with leukaemia can be that little bit brighter by helping families to create positive memories during such a difficult time.”

After the success of their launch event, Sunday Markets will next be held on October 22 (Halloween themed), November 12 (Christmas themed) and throughout 2018. Free entry. Find out more on their Facebook page.
