Military charity invites artisans to exhibit at Chateau Rhianfa

 

Stall holdersA military charity is inviting local artisans to exhibit their work at a craft fair held at Chateau Rhianfa.

Blind Veterans UK, the charity for blind and vision-impaired ex-Service men and women, is inviting local artisans to exhibit their unique crafts and products at the Artisan Craft Fair. The event will take place on both March 3 and March 4, from 11am to 4pm.

Victoria Beech, Blind Veterans UK Regional Fundraiser, says: “We’re excited to be returning to Chateau Rhianfa following our hugely successful Winter Market in November. The visitors were particularly impressed by both the quality and variety of hand-crafted items on offer. With that in mind, we’re calling on all local artisans to get in touch with a view to presenting their wonderful products in March.”

With North Wales known for its wealth of artisan crafts, this event will aim to provide locals with the opportunity to discover some truly unique items, including hand-crafted wood and textiles, prints and jewellery, including original silver designs. With Mother’s Day also just days after the fair, exhibitors will hopefully be able to ensure that the matriarchs of North Wales will enjoy some splendid gifts.

The Artisan Craft Fair takes place at the Chateau Rhianfa on March 3 and 4 from 11am to 4pm. If you would like to apply for a stall, please contact: Suzanne.evanson@blindveterans.org.uk. For more information, you can also please visit: blindveterans.org.uk/craftfair.

Blind Veterans UK was founded in 1915 and the charity’s initial purpose was to help and support soldiers blinded in WWI. But the organisation has gone on to support more than 35,000 blind veterans and their families, spanning WWII to recent conflicts including Iraq and Afghanistan.

For more than a century, the charity has been providing vital free training, rehabilitation, equipment and emotional support to blind and vision-impaired veterans no matter when they served or how they lost their sight. Visit blindveterans.org.uk/support to learn more about the charity and how you can support its vital work today.
