Monday, November 03, 2014

This year's Harpenden Circle Gift Fair will be held at the Harpenden Public Halls on November 21st and 22nd - 9.30am to 4.30pm. The nominated charity (which will receive the funds raised from the event) is the locally based Happy Days Children's Charity, which helps to support families and groups who care for children with special needs. There will be over 50 stalls offering a huge variety of gifts for all the family, arts and crafts, jewellery and food. It's a great opportunity to start some Christmas shopping. Also on offer will be a cafe, serving delicious home-baked food and refreshments including delicious mulled wine and mince pies. There is an exciting Tombola, with some fantastic prizes donated by local businesses. Last year the event managed to raise £12,000 for our charities, so a big thank you to everyone who came in 2013. Hopefully you will be able to make it again this November. Admission £2, children under 14 free. For further information regarding the event, and the charity it supports, please visit the following websites: www.ladiescircle.co.uk/harpenden/ourclub and www.happydayscharity.org

Welcome to Happy Days Children’s Charity

There are over 500,000 young people with special needs in the UK, many of them with severe mental health problems, physical disabilities and life-limiting illnesses. The financial strain on their families can be enormous and for some a simple trip to the seaside or a week's holiday is beyond their means.

We fund and organise respite breaks, residential trips, days out & visiting theatre performances, theatre trips throughout the UK for disadvantaged young people with special needs. We help young people in special needs schools, in hospitals and in hospices and we help individual families.

Since we were established in 1992, we have brought a little happiness into the lives of more than 150,000 young people, but there are many more waiting for our help. Will you help us to help them?
