Vintage fair in Chipping Sodbury raises £300 for Bristol's Cots for Tots appeal
VINTAGE tea sets and china sold like hot cakes at a charity flea market held in Chipping Sodbury at the weekend.
The event, at St John’s Church centre on Saturday, raised a total of £300 in aid of the Bristol Cots for Tots appeal.
It was organised by Debbie Elliott, from Yate, after her daughter Scarlett was treated at St Michael’s Hospital as a baby when a cyst was found in her stomach.
Scarlett, now 10, had to have major surgery aged just five weeks. She has now made a full recovery and helped her mum run a stall at the fair.
Said Debbie: “We have been holding these vintage markets in aid of Cots for Tots since February last year and we have now reached a grand total of £1,607.
“The fair on Saturday was really well supported and we sold loads of vintage tea cups and plates for weddings and hen nights.”
Debbie, with the help of her elder daughter Katie and her fiance Simon Cole, hold four flea markets a year.
The next event will b at St John’s Church centre on Saturday, May 25 (10am-4pm).
