THE ANNUAL Christmas Bazaar event hosted by the Coventry Enterprise Club will take place this weekend (November 14) and organisers are expecting a strong, festive, turnout.

The Enterprise Club for disabled people is an independent charity based in Stoke that has provided social and leisure activities for the disabled since 1938.

Providing care for those in the age range of 18 and upwards, the Enterprise Club receives no statutory funding.

Each year the club organises a fund raising campaign to achieve the £85,000 required to keep the premises, adapted mini buses and activities operating for twelve months.

The major festive event will take place this Saturday – starting at 2pm – at the charities headquarters in Avon Street.

A variety of stalls will be on display for visitors to interact with including various toys, jewellery, books, handicrafts and a special tombola.

Light refreshments will be available from the club’s coffee bar throughout the afternoon.

The club currently has 150 members who are all very passionate and have been supporting the event by handing out posters in the local area.

General manager at the Enterprise Club, Jill Simms, said: “We need as much support as possible for this event.

“The money raised from across the day will be used to support the accessible Transport Service and the weekly activities provided for our disabled members.

“Since forming in 1938, we have held our Christmas Bazaar event most years and it’s always the most supported across the calendar year.

“We have various social activities and sporting events that take place every year.

“Without public transport, some of our members find it very hard to get around so we’re providing them with a way to meet new friends and a chance to get out and try something new.”
