A MAGIC show, crafts competitions and even a visit from the Easter Bunny will entertain kids at a packed charity fair this weekend.

Hartlepool Families First has organised its annual Easter Fair, being held in the charity’s base, Cafe One77, in York Road, this Saturday, April 12.

A variety of fun activities, games and competitions will be on offer for families throughout the afternoon - and admission is free of charge.

Marcus Myrie, the charity’s senior fundraising and corporate events officer, said: “We’re all really looking forward to it.

“The Easter Fair is an annual tradition for Families First and it’s always been really successful in the past.

“It should be a fantastic day, we’ve got all sorts going on.”

The event will run from noon-3pm and everyone is welcome.

An Easter bonnet parade will feature during the afternoon while tombolas and raffles will help to raise even more money for the charity.

Marcus added: “There’s no real target for how much we want to raise, we just want to make sure everyone has a fantastic day and enjoys all of the brilliant activities we have planned.”
