A FUNDRAISING event for an Oxford homeless day centre is being planned.

A craft fair will take place at Grove Village Hall, near Wantage to raise money for the Porch Day Centre.

Details are also being finalised for a planned meal for 30 homeless people.

Organiser Kathy Head said: "The reason we chose this charity is because at Christmas we donated some food and warm clothes to the day centre and realized everyone remembers the homeless at Christmas, then they are forgotten.

"This is so sad so we decided to let people know they need support all year round. By doing events like our craft fair we can raise awareness."

The fair will take place on Saturday, March 23, from noon until 3pm.

Face painting, a cake stall, tombola, children's craft activities and more will be on offer.

Ms Head added: "We are also (hoping to) offer a meal for 30 homeless people at a restaurant in Wantage. We are looking for someone to kindly help us with providing transport."

Entry costs £1.
