- Created on Monday, 26 October 2015 12:08
Christmas is a busy time for most of us, including the team at St John’s. We aim to offer something for everyone in our Christmas festivities and we hope you can join us for one of our events this season:
Christmas Fayre 2015 on St John’s Wood High Street on Sunday December 6
Come along and join in the fun at our annual Christmas extravaganza. There will be an impressive selection of stalls with a wonderful range of handmade gifts and produce from local sellers. Enjoy a glass of mulled wine to put you in the festive mood and get some items ticked off your Christmas shopping list. Plus there will be fun for all the family including a fairground, donkey rides, Peppa Pig and Santa’s Grotto.
A wide selection of great food and drink will also be available to buy; including Belgian waffles and crepes. Entry is FREE open from 11am – 6pm.
Light Up A Life at St John’s Wood Church on Wednesday December 9 at 6.45pm
It is a truly beautiful event, which celebrates the lives of people who are special to us and remain in our thoughts. Attend our multi-faith service and make a dedication in remembrance, friendship or love of someone dear. After the service at St John’s Wood we will proceed by candlelight back to the St John’s Hospice for a reception where we will turn on our Christmas lights.
More details on how to include your loved one in our celebrations will follow in due course.
Paddington Christmas Fayre at Paddington Recreation Ground on Saturday December 12-13
Another great opportunity for you to purchase all of your Christmas essentials prior to the rush! With jewellery, gifts, cards and foods on sale, there will be something for everyone to the backdrop of live performances from local groups. Children can visit Santa’s Grotto and enjoy an array of fairground rides.
Entry is FREE open from 11am – 6pm.
Light Up A Life at St Mary’s with All Souls Church in Kilburn at 4.30pm
As a second chance to remember: attend our beautiful Light Up A Life service and take a moments to reflect during this delicate time of year. There will be an opportunity to dedicate a star and light a candle in memory of a loved one this Christmas.
We are very grateful to Seddons, Lord’s, Winkworth, Barclays, Yasmeen and Chestertons for their sponsorship of our Christmas Fayre and to Aspect Capital and Hymans Robertson for sponsoring Light Up A Life. This support means that all proceeds from the events will benefit our patients.
Volunteers from Lord’s are also generously giving up their time for all of the events above and we are very grateful for their efforts.
If you are unable to attend any of the events but would still like a St John’s Hospice Christmas you are welcome to purchase an item from our Christmas range or make a seasonal donation. Your support this season will ensure our work is funded and we can continue to provide free care in our community.
