ENTERPRISING students will hold a craft fair tomorrow to raise funds for their end-of-year show.

Talented students on the FDA contemporary textile practice course at Cleveland College of Art and Design will host a vintage and craft fair tomorrow from 3pm-6.30pm.

It will take place at the college’s Church Square campus in Hartlepool.

The aim is to raise funds for the students’ degree show in the summer.

Charlotte Appleyard, a former Manor College of Technology and Hartlepool Sixth Form student from the town’s Brooke Estate, said: “At the end of the year our class has a degree show and we are holding a craft fair to fundraise for the money we need for the degree show.

“We are coming to the end of our two-year course, but the majority of our class are staying on for a third year to top up to a BA degree.

“We have to buy our own shelves and tables for the show, which can cost anything up to £100.

“There are 10 or 11 of us in our class and each class has to do their own fundraising.”

Charlotte, who is the daughter of Hartlepool United Disabled Supporters Association (HUDSA) chairman Neil Appleyard, a retired teacher, hopes to go into teaching textiles.

She added: “We have got a few people bringing vintage clothes to sell at the fair, and we also have crafts and we are trying to get a big raffle going. There will also be cake stalls.”

There are still a few tables left at the fair and any sellers can contact Charlotte on 07920 762546 or email charlottelesleyappleyard@gmail.com.
