This year’s May Fayre will raise money for the Ollie Young Foundation, which funds research into childhood brain tumours.
Proceeds from the fayre, run by the Lions Club of Wokingham on behalf of the town council, will also go the town’s Citizen Advice Bureau and Wokingham and District Association for the Elderly (WADE).
Sue Balchin, from the Lions Club, said: “The police tell us that this is the largest street fayre in the South of England and that we usually attract 20,000 to 25,000 people on the day. We will be raising much needed funds to help local charities.”
The free fayre, supported by The Wokingham Times, on Monday, May 6 will be in the town centre and Elms Field and there will be charity stalls, fairground rides, a climbing wall, train rides and side shows.
Organisations who want to run a stall at the fayre or businesses who wish to help cover the cost of the event should contact the Lions Club on (0118) 961 9916.
