The Friends of St Luke’s Col­lege an­nual Christ­mas Mar­kets will be held at the end of the month, offering plenty of lo­cally made gifts to put un­der the tree.

Friends of St Luke’s spokes­woman Lor­raine Mar­shall said the group was gear­ing up for a won­der­ful day.

“This is a won­der­ful com­mu­nity event and one of our big­gest fundrais­ers for the col­lege,” she said.

“Funds raised at the mar­ket this year will go to­wards new bike racks for the stu­dents and also to­wards the up­grad­ing of some of our fa­cil­i­ties that are now start­ing to show their age.

“With over 40 stall­hold­ers sell­ing ev­ery­thing from jew­ellery, quilts, art­work, home wares, cards and pa­per­work prod­ucts through to clean­ing prod­ucts, crys­tals, can­dles and cloth­ing, there is sure to be some­thing that would be an ideal gift for you or for your Christ­mas gift to some­one else.”

Mrs Thomas said the sec­ond-hand book store could prove a win­ner for Christ­mas read­ing ideas.

Food and drink will also be on hand, with the ever-pop­u­lar home­made cake stall making a re­turn, as well as a sausage siz­zle, tea and slushies.

A raf­fle will be held to win a dec­o­rated cake or gin­ger­bread house.

The mar­ket will be held from 11am-3pm on Satur­day, Novem­ber 28 in the St Luke’s Col­lege gym­na­sium, with Santa present from 1.30pm.

Natalie Richards’ stall pa­per pixie was pop­u­lar last year.
