The Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity is appealing for donations for its Christmas bazaar’s chocolate tombola.

Selection boxes, sweets and other confectionery are all welcomed and can be dropped off at the charity’s promotional stand in Friar’s Square on November 30 between 9am and 4pm.

The bazaar will be held on Saturday December 3 at Bedgrove Community Centre in Ambleside from 2pm-4pm, and will also feature a raffle, gifts, cards and refreshments.

The charity needs to raise half a million pounds each year to keep local hospices running for families affected by life-limiting illness.
