Shopping fair aids counselling service

Source original, distinctive and affordable presents for all ages at a shopping fair.

The event, organised by The Friends of Derwent Rural Counselling Service, will be held at the Maynard Arms Hotel in Grindleford, on Wednesday, October 3 and Thursday, October 4.

Stallholders have agreed to donate 10 per cent of their takings to the charity, which is based at Newholme Hospital, Bakewell. There will also be a raffle on both days to help boost the charity funds.

The counselling service offers a professional and confidential service dealing with many issues including stress, bereavement, relationship problems and depression. So every article purchased at the Fair will help the DRCS.
