PREPARATIONS are underway for a charity fundraiser to start the run-up to Christmas.
The Thatched Cottage, in Baker Street, Orsett, is being turned into a festive wonderland for an exciting Christmas Fayre, which will be taking place next weekend.
There will be stalls, mulled wine, live music, carol singers, dancers and a Santa’s Grotto and some of the proceeds from the fayre will go to Little Haven’s Children’s Hospice.
Event organiser, Angela Lockwood told the Yellow Advertiser said: “We arranged a summer fayre in August and raised more than £200 for Help for Heroes, so decided to organise one for Christmas.
“We’ve got lots of activities taking place and it promises to be a really good day.”
The Festive Fayre takes place between 2pm and 9pm on Saturday, December 3.
