A hospice is appealing for stallholders to sign up to its popular carnival.

It is taking place on Spring Bank Holiday Monday, May 27, in Hove Park.

The family event always attracts big crowds with more than 3,000 visiting last year and pitches for stallholders sell out fast.

The Martlets hospice in Hove is calling for potential stallholders to book their places now.

Charlotte Bolton from the hospice’s fundraising team said: “Our Hove Park Carnival is a fantastic fun event for young and old with amusements, displays, rides and arena entertainments that draw in the crowds.

“It’s always a hugely busy day for stallholders and we are encouraging people who might be interested to book their pitch to make sure they don’t miss out.

“The funds raised from the hire of these pitches will help Martlets care for local people and their families.”

The cost of a stall for businesses is £40 and for charities it is £25.

Martlets is particularly interested in hearing from businesses, arts and crafts, health and wellbeing groups and those who produce beauty and food items – although the hospice is unable to accept stalls serving food.

Martlets is a charity which cares for people living through a terminal illness in and around Brighton and Hove.

It’s much more than a hospice and is working to change perceptions of hospice care.

Today, most patients receive care in their own home.

The hospice in Hove is a place where patients and their families can use the therapeutic services, drop-in clinics, visit the in-patient unit or just sit and have a coffee in the café.

The hospice’s community teams care for people living and dying at home.

Families and loved ones are supported into bereavement.

Martlets runs a 24/7 helpline for free, personal support.

Martlets’ care is only free thanks to the generosity of local people; every donation will help them change lives.
