Katie added: “Stalls are just £10 for the weekend, and alongside this we are running an amazing raffle, full of great prizes donated from our stall holders and a variety of local businesses.

“All money made from these stall fees and raffle tickets are not for profit, but instead going straight to the amazing local charity Age UK Lancashire.”

Katie added: “We have chosen Age UK Lancashire as our charity as they have really struggled for donations throughout Covid.

“But they have still diversified their services throughout the pandemic providing a hospital after care service, a good day phone call service, home help scheme and a supporting the local community service.”

“This charity has worked tirelessly throughout Covid in assisting the elderly community with getting home from hospital and providing them with support.”
