Childhood Cancer Association Fundraising Day

cca_logoChildhood Cancer Association Fundraising Day

October 8th, 2016

On Saturday the 8th, we will see the market engaging in our very first Childhood Cancer Association Fundraising Day. The market currently supports Bradley’s House in Victor Harbor, which is a respite property provided to families impacted by childhood cancer. We thought we’d go further and have a special fundraising day. So, bring the kids to market to take part of succulent planting. There will be a face painter as well as fantastic music. Many of our amazing stallholders will be donating some of their profits, so the more you buy on the day the more we raise. Please come along  to market and help us do something great!
