A SALON in Kincardine is set to host a Christmas fayre later this month after the huge success of their charity venture last year.

Blush Boutique is holding the event at the Masonic hall in Kincardine on Saturday November 17, with the owners hoping to raise money for a children's charity.

Kristina Allison, one of the owners, said: “This year we are choosing to help a charity called Cloud (Changing Lives on your Doorstep). This charity help families on our own doorstep in poverty or in times of need.

“We're asking everyone coming to bring a Christmas present for a boy or a girl who are less fortunate than ourselves aged between two and 15 so that they can receive it on Christmas morning.

“We also have a £1 raffle with so many great prizes thanks to businesses that have donated.

"We're also taking food donations to make hampers for the elderly at Christmas that the charity will give to people that they're aware need extra help.”

The families and elderly Kristina mentions are referred to the charity by a number of services including social work and the police.

Kristina continued: “Cloud have a Facebook page for any donations such as furniture, clothes, etc., that are then taken by the team that run it and given to families who they are aware of that need help, so it is all going to people that need it.

“We have collected kids and adults winter coats as well and have handed them to Hayley Marsh who is the admin for Cloud in Fife. No act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted.”

This month's fayre is completely free to attend and will be on between 11am and 3pm with a wide variety of stalls being set up as well as a visit from Santa.

Kristina added: “There will be a cost for pictures with Santa although every child will receive a selection box, and the photographer, Ann Callaghan is donating all monies raised back to the charity.”

Last year, Kristine and her business partner Pauline Stewart made an appeal for gifts which they would then donate to kids at Rachel House Hospice.

The drive was a huge success with two full car loads of gifts being donated and taken to the hospice to give the children their own piece of Christmas cheer.
