Charity fundraising Christmas Emporium in support of endangered elephants

Alresford resident Holly Budge is known for her daring adventures, including climbing Mount Everest last year, and her committed conservation work to help raise awareness and funds for endangered African elephants.

The lesser known area of Holly’s life is her work as a sustainable artist, and she has used her creative flair to develop her own range of elephant designed stationary, to help raise further funds for her charity How Many Elephants. To date, she has raised over £300k for various charities.

Holly will be presenting her stationery range at her Christmas Emporium at White Space Alresford, which will be a showcase for other local artisans who will be taking stands at the event from November 29th until December 1st at The Old Chapel, The Dean, Alresford SO24 9BQ.

The event has proved to be popular in the past, with a wide range of exclusive, original and handcrafted, high quality gift inspiration from a selection of local businesses, including:

Blue Bowl will show their quirky range of jewellery, vintage stationary, ceramics and handmade children’s toys.

Zara Snell of Winchester Fine Chocolates will be presenting her delicious handmade chocolates that she creates using only the finest ingredients and where possible locally sourced.

Artist Sharon Harvey will be displaying her vibrant art on canvas, paper and glass. Drawing her inspiration from nature, Sharon uses intense shards of colour to tell visual stories.

Winter’s Tale Christmas Tree Decorations will be adding lots of festive atmosphere to the event with their display of all things decorative for Christmas.

Sisi & Seb will offer ethically sourced and beautifully made clothes and accessories for children.

Evie’s Drawer - body, bath and home fragrances, jewellery and home accessories.

Holly Budge commented: “We have had such an enthusiastic response to our previous fundraising events and this year it will be full of lots of locally produced Christmas present ideas and festive accessories from a wide range of very talented artisans and makers.”

Dates and Times: • November 29th, 9.30-5pm. 6-8pm late night shopping & bubbles • November 30th, 9.30-5pm • December 1st, 9.30-1pm
