A CHRISTMAS fair with crafts made by adults with learning difficulties is being held this weekend.

Students at Learning for Life, in Consett, have been busy preparing gifts and events for the event on Saturday.

It is being held at the newly rebuilt and enhanced Citizens House from 10am to 3pm and proceeds will go towards providing specialist sensory equipment.

Learners, staff, family members and volunteers are giving up their free time to offer a wide range of events on the day, including tombola, raffle and bric-a-brac stalls.

There will be baked goods, local police and firefighters as well as musical entertainment.

The Oasis for Life Café is also offering a wide range of light snacks and festive treats as well as hot and cold beverages.

Principal of Learning for Life, Marie Matthewson, said a lot of hard work has gone into preparing the event and creating the gifts and baked goods for sale.

She said: “The monies raised from all of this hard work will go towards providing some highly specialist sensory equipment that will enhance our learners’ lives and make a positive impact to their learning targets and progression.

“Every penny raised will make a difference to each of Learning for Life’s amazing young adults.

“That is something everyone who has been involved in the Fayre can be incredibly proud of.”
