AN ANNUAL fundraiser, which last year raised more than £18,000, returns to Haddington this weekend.

Save the Children’s Country Market takes place in the town’s Corn Exchange tomorrow (Saturday).

This annual market is run by volunteers for the charity, which promotes children’s rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries.

The market is full of county producers and the community providing wonderful support with their produce and contributions.

Any contributions can be brought to the Court Street venue today (Friday), from 9am to noon and 1.30pm to 5pm. The market itself takes place from 9.30am until 3pm, with a wide array of stalls, from fruit and vegetable, delicious home baking, larder, flowers and plants to bric-a-brac, accessories, books, clothes and toys.

There will also be a country café to revive the exhausted shoppers.

Save the Children will also have a raffle and a stall selling the charity’s latest Christmas cards.

Haddington Pipe Band will also take part in this year’s market as they parade down the High Street to the market at 10.45am. Tickets cost £1 for adults and 50p for children and over 60s (under-5s get in free of charge).
