Stansted gym to host fundraising festive market to ensure vulnerable children can enjoy a gift on Christmas Day

Stronger Together Gym in Stansted is hosting a fundraising Christmas market to bring festive cheer to vulnerable children.

The event on Thursday November 24, from 7pm to 9pm, will be held at the gym in Hornbeam Way, on the Walpole Meadows estate, which is run by former Herts and Essex High School girls Sarah Tann and Victoria Kemp.

The £5 entry will include a welcome drink and mince pie. Shoppers will be able to browse a selection of stalls selling festive gifts.

Money raised will be used to buy toys and other gifts for children of all ages and will then be distributed to Hertfordshire Children's Services, vulnerable children in women's refuges and via the Salvation Army.

The duo, who launched their business earlier this year, said: "We really wanted to raise money for a local cause in what is going to be a tough year for families choosing between heating, food, warm clothing and gifts. It is our aim to help them reach out to as many vulnerable children as possible.

"We're linking up with local charities to raise funds for vulnerable children in our community, children who might otherwise get very little on Christmas morning.

"We would like to put a big smile on as many little faces as possible, so all proceeds raised on the night from ticket sales and raffle tickets will be going to help them.

"In line with our values to help the community, we are featuring lots of local small businesses as stallholders on the night."

Tickets for the event are available here.
