Emmaus Hertfordshire kick-starts Christmas with cake and crafts fair

Hertford Raffle

Emmaus Hertfordshire is kick-starting Christmas with a fun-filled day of cake, coffee, and crafts at its second-hand shop in Hertford.

From 10am – 4pm on Tuesday 18 December, visitors to the Emmaus charity shop at Foxholes Farm, Hertford, will be able to purchase homemade crafts, Christmas cards and jewellery all made by locals, as well enjoying cake, tea and coffee.

A raffle will wrap up the day with prizes including hamper donations from Tesco and Foxholes farm containing bottles of wine, Christmas puddings, and assorted goodies. Other prizes include a voucher from Animal Feed, a voucher for Platinum Pouches at Foxhole Farm, and a Christmas cake made by local Joan Turner.

“This event wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing support from our regular customers and volunteers, who have donated their time to bake and make craft items to sell on the day. I would also like to thank Foxholes Farm and Tesco for donating generous raffle prizes. We are excited to welcome visitors to the shop so that they can enjoy what’s on offer.”

All proceeds from the day will go towards supporting Emmaus Hertfordshire, a charity which offers up to 39 people who have experienced homelessness and social exclusion a home for as long as they need and the opportunity to gain valuable skills in its six charity shops in Hertford, St Albans, Tring, Hemel Hempstead, Harpenden, and Barnet.
