Donington Park Christmas Fayre
Donington Park will be supporting When You Wish Upon a Star at the circuit’s festive Christmas Fayre, which will take place on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December
Donington Park’s Christmas Fayre will see the venue transformed into a fairy-tale festive scene held inside the large exhibition centre and will host festivities for the whole family, featuring approximately 140 stalls full of various gift ideas, festive treats and flavours plus a special themed ice rink, entertainment, funfair, live music, Santa’s Grotto and more. The charity will be raising funds through a Christmas tombola and encouraging visitors to make donations in return for one of our Stars for Wishes decorations which they can hang on the events Christmas tree or take home to decorate their own. The funds raised during the weekend will help us ensure children living with life threatening illnesses and their families have a magical Christmas together.
Alison Nicholls, Chief Operating Officer for Donington Park said: “We’re delighted to be supporting and raising money for such a caring children’s charity and would like to extend our invitation out to everyone across the region to join us at the event, as well as ask everyone to save the date and spread the message.”
Regional fundraising manager, Nicola Brien, commented: “We are delighted that Donington Park have chosen to support us this Christmas through their festive Christmas Fayre. The children we grant wishes for are seriously ill. Many spend a lot of time at hospital and miss out on valuable childhood memories. By granting their wish, we are able to give a child an experience they and their family will never forget – and hopefully give them back part of their childhood too, in a special way. Each December we help hundreds of children to swap hospital beds for sleigh rides. Transporting them away from appointments, treatments and injections, to the winter wonderland of Lapland on board our Santa Express flights to visit Father Christmas but we couldn’t do it without you. We hope to see lots of people at the Donington Christmas Fayre, your support will help make children’s wishes come true.”
