Handmade craft, plants, produce and art will all be available at the inaugural Christmas Market Day at Bargara supporting a good cause.
Community members are invited to get in early to purchase Christmas gifts at the St Peter’s Anglican Church fundraiser, which will be held at the beginning of November.
St Peter’s Anglican Church members Robyn Ind and Sue Galvin are organising the Christmas Market Day, which will help raise money for Little Dreamers, the soup kitchen at Bundaberg, and other community organisations.
Robyn said throughout the year church members held afternoon teas to raise money and this was the first time they had held a Christmas market to fundraise.
“Our parish, St Peter’s, is part of Christ Church in Bundaberg, and we fundraise throughout the year,” she said.
“We hold three afternoon teas a year and they help bring in good money, but our people are getting older, and I hope this will attract the younger generation and families to come along.”
They are hoping the Christmas Market Day will encourage families to stop by and find out what the church offered.
“Our goal is to be part of the community, and everyone is welcome, we help where we can,” she said.
“We want people to know we are there; whether it’s for a cup of tea or coffee, to sit down and have a chat, or if people need professional help – we have resources to help with that too.
“The market is new to us and I am hoping it will let the community know what we have to offer, while browsing the market stalls.”
The Christmas Market Day will be held between 9 am and 3 pm on Saturday 5 November at the hall at St Peter’s Anglican Church, Bauer Street, Bargara.
