A Wolverhampton charitable organisation is to hold its first ever ‘Givemas Fayre’ to raise money for their period poverty project.
Project Give will hold the fayre on Saturday following enormous success since it started in September.
The project’s main aim is to collect sanitary products and deliver them to schools around the area – and at the event this week they will be collecting again.
Kelly Walker-Reed, of Project Give, said: “We wanted to carry on the momentum of the project.
“We have so far been donated well over 10,000 items. We have enough sanitary products to fill every school in Wolverhampton ten times over.”
The fayre will host over 20 festive stalls selling: jewellery, vegan cakes, The Body Shop products, books, craft items and many more. There will also be an appearance from Mrs Claus.
Gorgeous FM will provide live entertainment, as well as a choir and belly dancers.
MP for Wolverhampton South West Eleanor Smith will be doing a speech on the day about why she supports Project Give.
There will also be a raffle to win Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Conor Coady’s signed boots and the chance to win a future meet and greet with the footballer.
This prize was donated by PayCare who recently offered Project Give free office space.
The fayre will see three charities coming together to raise money for individual causes. Project Give is partnering with the Light House Media Centre which is raising money to secure its future, as well as children’s charity Promise Dreams, who will be hosting a cinema screening on the day.
The fayre will be held at the Light House Media Centre, Fryer Street, Wolverhampton on Saturday 8 December 12-4pm.
