Stallholder Information

In the past four years, we have helped raise over £10,000 for local good causes…

...and you can help us to raise more this year!

One of Sunbeam’s founding philosophies has been to help others. Founder Claire Crane was originally attracted to crafting as a recommendation following an illness. As a result, Sunbeam now helps many crafters who  themselves have physical disabilities, or have suffered from some form of mental illness, to become successful crafters and develop their inbuilt talents, increasing their self confidence in the process. Sunbeam’s stallholders are incredibly supportive of each other, rather like a close-knit family.

As a result, Sunbeam are always highly supportive of local good causes and have helped to raise thousands of pounds for these needy organisations in the past four years. Sunbeam are supporting the following good causes in 2018…

Sophie’s Journey. Sophie Southwell was an extremely brave little girl who battled with a brain tumour showing great strength and courage. She sadly lost her battle in 2016 but not before she and her army of family and friends had set up a fund and raised thousands of pounds for the brain tumour research centre in Nottingham.  Now her memory is being celebrated by her army raising money to provide, equip and manage holiday homes for children who suffer similar illnesses to enjoy quality time with their families at the seaside. The current project is to raise £50,000 to provide a holiday home that is specially adapted for children with life threatening conditions and who have very limited mobility. We want to support Sophie’s Journey to help them achieve their dream.

Bloodwise  fund life-saving research which is focused on finding causes, improving diagnosis and discovering better treatments for different types of blood cancer.

They also provide support, information and resources to patients and families affected by blood cancer.

This is very close to Sunbeam’s heart. Petra Lucas was a very popular sunbeam crafter who sadly suffered from blood cancer and passed away last year.

Sunbeam have chosen Bloodwise as one of our nominated charities for 2018 in honour of her memory.
