The most recent Wye Wednesday Market coffee morning fundraiser managed to raise £75 for Acorns Children’s Hospice.

The raffle was won by Mr and Mrs Wallace.

The next charity coffee morning will be held on Wednesday December 7 at the Larruperz Centre where we will be raising funds for a local family and their son Logan. Teas and coffees will be sold from 10am–12pm, as well as cakes and baked from Wye Wednesday Market resident baker, Desserts For You!

Logan has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour, and may have just a year left to enjoy his “funny, cheeky, sometimes crazy little life”. This is an unbearable time for his whole family as they try to come to terms with his diagnosis and support him and his parents, Lauren and Matt, as they try to keep a brave face for Logan.

Organiser Michelle Gardner told the Gazette: “We will have an array of stalls selling Christmas gifts as well as second hand jigsaws for sale, with proceeds also going to charity.”

The market will have a number of stalls selling Christmas gifts as well as second hand jigsaws for sale, with proceeds also going to charity.

Acorns Children’s Hospice provide specialist palliative care for life limited and life threatened babies, children, and young people—and support for their families. This support is offered from their three hospices based in Worcester, Birmingham, and Walsall, as well as in the family home and community.

The Wye Wednesday market, which was established this year, has been gaining a good momentum with people queuing to get in.

In previous fundraiser coffee mornings £127 was raised to help support KTS Crafts who have raised an incredible amount of money for Ukraine, as well as sending over a substantial number of trucks loaded up with aid.

That particular coffee morning was so successful that organiser Michelle Gardiner decided to make the first market of every month a fundraising event ever since, for a different charity every time. The plan is to bolster the effectiveness of the event by supporting local businesses as well as a charitble cause at the same time.

Many of the markets this year have been fully booked with vendors, some returning from previous weeks with a number of new sellers thrown in.
