GIFTS galore will be on sale at a charity Christmas craft fair in Darlington next month.

The town's Lioness Club is holding its annual fair, at the Blackwell Grange Hotel, from 10am to 4pm, on Sunday, October 26.

There will be thirty stalls, featuring jewellery, clothing and leather goods, teddy bears, baking, needlecraft, model aircraft, glass engraving, salt-dough modelling, beeswax candles and pewter craft.

Admission is £1 and free for children. Money raised from the event will be used to help local leukaemia sufferers.

Lioness president Pat De Martino said: "There will be all kinds of things to buy. It is a very mixed sort of show, plus a raffle. We normally raise about £1,200 for charity."
