A Truro craft store is holding a fundraising party in aid of St Austell children’s hospice Little Harbour.
Hobbycraft Truro will be holding a Butterfly Craft Party for Children’s Hospice South West from 10am on Saturday, March 30.
The butterfly theme has been chosen as it is the official logo of Together for Short Lives, a charity for UK children’s hospices and Hobbycraft’s charity of the year for 2013.
For a £1 donation families can take part in butterfly face painting, badge-making, try some iced butterfly cookies or create colourful butterfly characters, masks and posters.
Hobbycraft Truro manager Angela Fowler said: “We want people to have lots of fun at the craft party so we’ll be offering families all they need to make an array of fabulous butterfly themed creations – and some delicious cakes.”
Bernadette Chambers, corporate partnerships fundraiser at Little Harbour, said: “The craft party is an ideal way to raise funds and awareness as art and play is an important part of what children’s hospices do.
“We have a dedicated art room where children and their siblings can express their feelings through creativity, and this butterfly party really represents that.”
