Craft fair in memory of Durrington boy

A CRAFT and Christmas fair is being held to raise money in memory of a young boy who died from leukaemia.

Hannah Mackrell, a family friend of Luke Cory who died, aged six, in December 2009, hopes there will be 30 stalls at the event on November 26, at Oak Grove College, in The Boulevard.

It will run from 1-4pm and will include stalls of hand-crafted gifts, jewellery, children’s clothes, hand-made cards, cupcakes, express beauty treatments and much more.

Money raised will go towards funding a caravan in Selsey, where children who are ill can go for a week’s holiday with their family.

The location was chosen because it is near to St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester, so children can get there easily for treatment.
