It's early, but the organising committee of the Nativity Crib Festival are asking us to start thinking about making or loaning a crib for the 2015 Festival in December.
Around 5000 visitors attended the event last year and found a truly heart warming collection of some 180 contemporary and traditional nativity cribs, many gifted and loaned just for the exhibition.
The deadline for anyone wishing to loan a crib for the Festival is the 30 November, but organisers are requesting contact be made with the committee as early as possible. Full details are available online below.
The Jessie May local children’s charity has opened its first ever pop-up shop in Yate Shopping Centre and took over £1,800 in the first week thanks to the generosity of local residents.
The shop, donated free for two months to 31st July by the Centre, is located at 33 North Walk. Andrew Lowrey, Shopping Centre Manager, said: “As a local children’s charity we wanted to provide support for this very valuable service. It is not a high profile charity but with a pop-up shop in the Centre, it will help them both raise funds and establish a local profile.”
Head of Fundraising and Communications for the Charity, Julian Withers, said: “We had a fabulous first week and took over £1800! I don’t think any of us expected this and we are amazed at everyone’s generosity.”
