Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice Vintage Fair will offer visitors a chance to step back in time when it opens its doors on Saturday, October 29, at St Chad’s Parish Centre, Otley Road, Headingley.

Wheatfields Hospice hopes the fair will raise vital funds needed to continue giving the care it gives every day.

Charlotte Revill, senior fundraiser at Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice, said: “People will have the chance to step back in time and see things that you wouldn’t find nowadays at fairs. Whether you like retro, vintage or just a trip down Memory Lane then this is definitely the place for you.

“If picking up lots of great offers makes you a little bit peckish, there will be plenty of refreshments available on the day including hot drinks and delicious homemade cakes.

“There isn’t any entry fee, but a donation is welcome. The hospice needs as many people as possible to come along and get involved, as it costs £4.4 million a year to run the hospice and £2.5 million of this comes from voluntary donations.”

Visitors will be able to spend hours browsing goods - some of which date back to the 1920s.

The vintage fair will host stalls selling a medley of items including clothes, jewellery, books, toys and vinyl. A wide variety of food will also be available throughout the event, which starts at 10am and ends at 4pm.

Established more than 35 years ago, Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice provides hospice care for people living in the north west, west and south of Leeds.
