Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Christmas Gift and Food Fair returns to Essex!

The Christmas Gift and Food Fair is back, at Chelmsford City Racecourse on Saturday 26th November! Helen Rollason Cancer Charity will be hosting one of the region’s biggest and most prestigious Christmas shopping experiences in the county, showcasing over 100 local businesses.

The charity’s Community Fundraiser, Gemma said “We are looking forward to this fair so much we have some amazing stalls, food and music, and the atmosphere will be full of excitement as we look forward to the festive season.”

The fair offers shoppers the opportunity to buy from and therefore champion local small businesses selling handmade gifts, crafts, candles and much more alongside food & drink. It is the perfect opportunity to purchase those all-important gifts whilst supporting a local charity, which supports people within your community.

Helen Rollason Cancer Charity provides support services for those living with cancer across Essex; these services include complementary therapies, counselling, and access to a range of support groups. There is no charge for the services we provide but for those who receive them they are invaluable.

“Helen Rollason Cancer Charity has helped me feel less stressed and I now have somewhere safe to go where I know I will be looked after, cared for and listened to. I would definitely recommend HRCC to others who are living with cancer.”
