It is held in the old Dun Laoghaire Shopping Centre where a stall is set up on the main concourse where it attracts a lot of passing trade.
It was extremely successful last year selling a very wide variety of craft plus pictures both textile and painted of a high standard, some members might like to contribute, the prices are realistic and it all goes to the charity.
Members can find it on Face Book under The Cottage Home and Blackrock Hospice Fair, or contact Kerry Pocock on 0868729415 for further information about donations etc.
