Christmas Gift And Craft Fair With Age UK Merton

Support a local charity as well as meet Santa!

Age UK Merton are inviting everyone in the community, young and old, to join them for a Christmas Gift and Craft Fair on Saturday December 2 between 12pm – 3pm.

The fair is taking place at the Elmwood Centre in Mitcham and entry is free.

There'll be an opportunity to pick up some handmade gifts for Christmas, and they will be selling hot dogs (vegetarian and meat) and other refreshments. There'll also be a Santa’s grotto where children can meet Father Christmas and receive a small gift.

The money raised at the Christmas Fair will go to Age UK Merton, a local charity supporting older people across the borough both in their own homes and at our fantastic Elmwood Centre.

In Merton 33% of people aged over 65 live on their own and our services are essential to help keep older people involved in their community, active and independent.  As winter draws they we focus on helping people to stay warm through winter and reducing loneliness over the festive period.

Last year they supported over 2,500 older people but are reliant on the support of the local community and businesses to help us carry on this essential work.

The address for the Elmwood Centre is 277 London Road, Mitcham, CR4 3NT.
