Samantha Jones markets set out their stalls

DEDICATED fundraisers are setting out an exciting array of new stalls and products as they continue their markets in aid of The Samantha Jones Trust.

The events are held monthly at the Civic Hall in Uppermill to raise money for the children’s leukaemia charity, based in Delph.

The charity was launched in 2004 by the family and friends of Samantha Jones, who lost her battle with the disease two years earlier, aged just 16.

Since then, they have raised thousands of pounds to help improve the quality of lives of children and their families while they suffer the gruelling treatment of leukaemia.

Their monthly markets help raise vital funds, along with sponsored events such as marathons, and donations from groups and individuals.

Natalie Daniels, secretary, said: “The markets continue at Uppermill Civic Hall this year.

“We have 50 stalls selling fantastic new products and a range of new stalls featuring handmade products.

“We will also be continuing with our popular charity Café proudly supported by Buckleys Bakery, Uppermill.”

The Trust is also aiming to recruit new volunteers to help out on market day. Anyone interested should contact chairman Keith on 01457 829479 or pop along to a market for a chat and browse.

The markets are held at the Civic Hall in Uppermill from 10am-3pm, with free entry. There is free parking. The next events are on February 10, March 10, April 14, May 19, June 9, September 8, October 13, November 10 and December 8.
