Stall-holders are being urged to book a spot for the second Stokie Christmas Market – before places run out.

"It only costs £15 per stall which is very reasonably priced and those setting up will have the added benefit of knowing they are supporting good causes. It will also be a great day out for the family with lots of festive cheer."

Fire Safety Assistant Kelvin Chell

Firefighters organised the first fundraiser at Hanley Community Fire Station last Christmas and raised an impressive £4,000 for charity.

They are hoping to raise even more money this time around and are inviting people to book a space to ensure they don’t miss out. It costs £15 per stall or £30 for double the space.

The event will take place at the community fire station on December 12 from 10am until 4pm.

Fire Safety Assistant Kelvin Chell, who is organising the event, said: "The event last year was a great success and we managed to raise £4,000 for some extremely worthwhile charities. We are keen to build on that achievement and make this year’s event even better with a wide range of stalls from crafts to cakes and Christmas gifts.

"It only costs £15 per stall which is very reasonably priced and those setting up will have the added benefit of knowing they are supporting good causes. It will also be a great day out for the family with lots of festive cheer."

Money raised from the event in 2014 was split between The Fire Fighters Charity, Douglas MacMillan Hospice, The Donna Louise Trust and Fresh Air which is based at the Royal Stoke Hospital.
