St Ives crafters showcase homemade good for children’s charity

St Ives-based Saints Crafters has celebrated three years of showcasing some of the finest handmade goods in Huntingdonshire by presenting a cheque for �802 to the children’s charity, Dreamdrops.

The money was raised through a tombola that can be found at the Crafters’ fairs, which are held on the first Saturday of each month at the St Ives Free Church on Market Hill.

The fairs feature a variety of handmade goods for sale – from painted porcelain and greetings cards to soya candles and handmade soap.

Up to now the group has made significant donations to Dreamdrops and Hunts Society for the Blind.

INFORMATION: The next Saints Crafters fair is on Saturday, May 5.
