Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa holds charity Christmas Fayre

Christmas festivities will soon be underway at one of Cheshire’s finest hotels, The Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa with the annual Charity Christmas Fayre on 15th November 2012 from 6-9pm, in aid of Nicola’s Fund. The Fayre raises much needed funds for the charity which aims to improve the quality of life for children with cancer, and is the chosen headline charity of the four-star Grosvenor Pulford – owned and operated by Nelson Hotels.

The evening is set to be festive fun for all ages. Children are sure to be delighted by the snowy winter wonderland, complete with a visit from Santa and his faithful reindeer. All visitors will enjoy the delights of the opulent Grosvenor Suite, decked in all its dazzling festive glory, whilst browsing the Fayre’s many stalls, piled high with a variety of tempting offerings including Christmas decorations and hand crafted gifts, beauty gift sets, books, silver and crystal jewellery, handbags, plus scrumptious cakes and tasty treats.

With each stall making a donation to the charity, it’s the ideal place to pick up stocking fillers, gifts and treats; or to simply gather festive ideas and enjoy a glass of warming mulled wine, whilst admiring the stunning Christmas decorations and fabulous surroundings the hotel has to offer. 

For those in need of a little festive pampering, Spa by Kasia will be offering mini spa treatments throughout the evening and the Charity Raffle offers the ideal opportunity to pick up an exciting prize.

Tickets for the Charity Christmas Fayre cost just £5 per person with all proceeds going to Nicola’s Fund and include a complimentary glass of mulled wine and a voucher for a luxury treatment to the value of £40 when booking a 55-minute treatment at Spa by Kasia.

Amy Nelson, spa director, comments: “Following the brilliant success of last year’s Christmas Fayre, where we raised a much needed £1,300 for Nicola’s Fund, we are hoping that the response this year will be even greater so that we can surpass last year’s fundraising efforts. Once again we will be transforming the Grosvenor suite into a winter wonderland, showcasing unique gifts and stocking fillers while Santa’s reindeer also make a welcome return to the festivities.”

Nicola’s Fund was set up as a charity early 2006. Nicola Riley had discussed with her parents setting up a charity to help children going through the difficulties of coping with cancer, particularly children who were unable to travel long distances. This discussion took place in Florida 2004 where she enjoyed swimming with dolphins but was concerned about some of the friends she left at Alder Hey who were too ill to travel.

When Nicola passed away she left written instructions to use the money in her savings account to be used to start the charity. Debbie & Steve decided to fulfil her wishes and invited some close friends who were close to Nicola to join forces. The charity is managed by a team of trustees who give their time freely and many other volunteers who roll their sleeves up and help set up the events. Every penny raised goes straight to the families we help with absolute minimumadministration costs. Our long term vision is to set up a retreat (similar to the one Nicola stayed in America).

Our aims are "To improve the quality of life for Children with Cancer" and "To provide support and help for the families of Children suffering from Cancer".
