Organised jointly by Oxford mental health charity Restore and the Elder Stubbs charity, the Fayre is open from 12 to 4.30pm on 20th August, at the allotment site on Rymers Lane, opposite Florence Park. Admission costs just £3 for adults, under 16s are free, and unwaged entry £1. People can pay on the day or buy a ticket in advance.
“Past Elder Stubbs Fayre’s have attracted up to 3,000 people. This year’s fayre will be a great afternoon out, with masses to do and enjoy. And a great chance to explore the hidden gem of the Elder Stubbs site” said Lesley Dewhurst, CEO of Restore, “We ran a small event last summer just for Restore members and the allotment holders, but we’re looking forward to welcoming many more people from the local community this year. We are delighted to be working in partnership again with the Elder Stubbs Charity, our hosts at the allotments.”
Elder Stubbs Allotments is home to a recovery group from the charity, Restore. Oxford-based Restore is a mental health charity that works to support people to take control of their recovery, develop skills and lead meaningful lives. Restore offers recovery groups, training and employment coaching to make this possible.
Funds raised from the Fayre will help to support Restore’s work on mental health across Oxfordshire. For more information or for tickets, visit restore.org.uk
