An Easter fair is being held at Cayton Methodist Church to raise money for St Catherine’s Hospice in memory of a special mum.

The fair, on Saturday April 5, will take place from 11am to 1pm and admission is free of charge.

Organised by Scarborough couple Ian and Caroline Wright, the fair is being in appreciation of the hospice care given to Caroline’s mum, Barbara Crimlis, last year.

Caroline said: “Mum received outstanding care from Saint Catherine’s during her illness and also for the last three weeks of her life.

“This care was extended to the family also and this is our way of saying thank you.”

She added: “Mum was very active in the community, having been involved in scouting and guiding from the late 1960s to the 1990s as Brown Owl at Overdale and Tawny Owl at Loders Green.”

The event will feature a large variety of bespoke stalls to entice avid shoppers, crafters and those wishing to browse.

In addition to the wide range of individual craft stalls, art lovers will have opportunity to view and buy work by local artist Don Micklethwaite, who will inscribe personal messages on them on the day.

There will also be a raffle and shoppers will be further tempted by a large selection of delicious home-made cakes.

Ian is also taking on the challenge of the National Three Peaks Challenge starting May 31, which comprises of climbing the three highest peaks in the UK in 24 hours.

If anyone would like to sponsor Ian, they can do so via his online donation site at www.doitforcharity.com/IanWright or contact Louise Gravestock in the fundraising department on (01723) 378406.
