For original and bespoke quality Christmas gifts by leading UK artists, designers and craftspeople, pop into a very special Christmas Fair at The Queen’s Arms, Battersea on Thursday 23rd November from 10am to 9pm.
Not only will you find gifts to thrill, you will be helping to save young lives. As well as raising funds for national charity PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide, the event aims to raise awareness of the hope and help that the charity provides to young people struggling with life.
The fair is being organised by parents of St Philip’s School, Kensington, to thank Harry Biggs-Davison who retired last year as Headmaster and is now a Trustee of PAPYRUS.
“We, the parents of St Philip’s, owe him a lot and wish to give back a little,” said Sofie Von Graevenitz on behalf of the parents. “We all have children who are, or have been, growing up and might be affected by depression or know somebody who is. The more awareness we spread on how to spot a young person who is struggling, and encourage them to talk about their feelings, the more we help ourselves.”
Stalls include wonderful vintage clothing, jewellery and accessories; bright and beautiful handmade jewellery for children and teens; original artist-made prints and books; colourful plates from recycled glass, including Christmas themes, Christmas tree decorations and not forgetting delicious Scottish Tablet (fudge), an essential for everyone’s stocking.
Harry Biggs-Davison will introduce PAPYRUS at 12 noon and 18:00. Do pop in to say hello. Bring your friends, explore the stalls and take a break with a cup of tea or mulled wine.
In the UK suicide is the main cause of death of young people under 35. In 2015 1,659 (latest ONS) took their own lives. 200 school children die by suicide every year. #SaveTheClassOf2018.
