The door entry fee is £3 per adult, with children under 12 having free entry. All our door proceeds are donated to charity. We will be dividing the proceeds between Katharine House Hospice (supported by Carrdus for many years) and another super local charity Rosy (also supported by Carrdus Christmas Fair in 2016 and 2017).
Katharine House Hospice provides specialist palliative care for adults with life limiting conditions across North Oxfordshire, South Northamptonshire & South Warwickshire. They care for people at end of life, but also offer respite care and support for symptom management and pain relief. Many of their patients come in to the hospice, but they also care for many more in their own homes, care homes or in the hospital.
Rosy (Respite nursing for Oxfordshire’s Sick Youngsters) is a charitable support group dedicated to the provision of additional respite care to Oxfordshire’s sick youngsters who are nursed at their own homes. The immense benefits of being nursed at home include the opportunity for the children to be with their loved ones, their own pets, toys and familiar surroundings, but of course this in turn places an enormous burden on the families. Rosy was formed in 2002 to provide additional nursing, specialist equipment and additional support to these families.
