Meet the Alpacas at hospitals Christmas Fayre
The Christmas Alpacas will be one of the main attractions at the Christmas Fayre being held at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital from 4pm to 8pm on Thursday 11th December. Father Christmas will be in his grotto giving gifts to children and Norfolk Chef Richard Hughes will be holding a special Christmas cookery demonstration from 5pm to 6pm.
At the fayre, visitors will be able to browse a variety of stalls and purchase books, toys, gifts, clothes and jewellery. There will be plenty of seasonal food to buy including homemade cakes by Trust Treats, sweets from Norfolk Truffles and hot, roasted turkey baps by Serco. The hospital staff's amazing Christmas cakes for the annual festive baking competition will also be on display.
Entertainment will be provided by live performance from Busybodies Stage School, the NNUH choir, Scunsulata, Little Red Shoes and a performance of bell ringing by the Bellfolk Ringers.
Louise Cook, Fundraising Manager at the NNUH said: “There will be something for all age groups and a chance to look for something different as a gift for families and friends, while helping the hospital raise funds at the same time. This year thanks to all our wonderful team of knitters we will be having a handmade knitted toy stall which will raise funds specifically for our Neonatal Intenstive Care Unit. However we couldnt hold this wonderful event which is enjoyed by staff, visitors and our patients without the support of all the performers, Burnt Fen Alpacas, West Norwich Lions and Serco we are incredibly grateful to all those who help.”
The event will be raising money for the hospital charity. There is free entry to the event and free parking on the main hospital site. For more information, go to: www.nnuh.nhs.uk
