Come along and join the Mater Private Hospital Redland Auxiliary for an afternoon of pre-Christmas shopping.
The Mater Christmas Markets is an annual fundraising event that positively supports our local hospital, the Mater Private Hospital, a significant and respected organisation in the Redlands.
The Mater Auxiliary is a committee of Redland-based volunteers who raise funds supporting patient care and the purchase of additional medical equipment for the hospital and its patients.
The Mater Christmas Markets is now in its seventh year and 2019 marks the third year it will be held at RPAC, and the first time on a weekend. This change to a Saturday is a direct result of community feedback.
The Mater Market attracts over 30 local artisans and community groups who have handmade Christmas-themed items for sale. Stallholders include the Mater Hospital Volunteers and Chicks-in-Pink the Redland Cancer Council, Matilda’s Quilters and Crafters (from Donald Simpson Centre), local authors and local produce.
There will be a variety of stalls on offer including:
- stocking fillers
- and much more
There will also be a performance by Redland Rhapsody Chorus to enjoy and a multi-draw raffle with lots of great prizes to be won! Refreshments are available for sale, including a sausage sizzle.
This is an excellent opportunity to get ahead of the rush and purchase great gifts for Christmas, and all funds raised from the evening will support patient care at Mater Private Hospital Redland.
We hope to see you at the Markets on Saturday 16 November 10am-2pm
