On Saturday 1 October 2011, the Save the Children Annual Country Market will again take place at The Corn Exchange, Haddington, from 09:30 to 15:00.
Year on year this regional event run by the Save the Children East and Midlothian Branch raises approximately £15,000 through the generosity of the local population; Save the Children helps children in 120 countries around the world and here in the UK, where in Scotland one in five children live in poverty.
The Market offers a wide range of stalls to shop at including Home Baking, Clothes, Flowers, Fruit and Vegetables, Larder, Plants, Toys, Sweets, Books, Bric a Brac and Accessories.
In addition to the stalls at the market Save the Children will also run a country café offering teas, coffees, sandwiches and traybakes for the duration of the market, together with a Save the Children stall and a Raffle with lots of fantastic prizes.
One of the highlights of the Country Market will be the Haddington Pipe Band who will march up the High Street at 10:45 with collecting cans for donations to the charity.
Contributions welcomed at The Corn Exchange, Haddington, on Friday 30 September from 09:00 – 12:00 and from 13:30 – 17:00. Contributions may also be collected by arrangement. Please contact Anna Smaill – 01875 820757
