Shoppers at The Arley Hall Christmas Shopping Spectacular didn’t disappoint in supporting the Christmas shopping event of the year, and all for a good cause.

The highly anticipated event welcomed visitors from across the region and showcased over 70 hand-picked artisan stalls at the event. The Tuesday evening welcomed guests to an exclusive preview evening with a glass of bubbles to set the festive mood.

The Arley Hall Christmas Shopping Spectacular for the first time was organised and run entirely by The Joshua Tree and raised an impressive £21,000.

Pippa Watson-Peck, from The Joshua Tree, said: “The Arley Hall Christmas Shopping Spectacular marks a special time in the festive season and we didn't want to see this end, so we decided as an organisation to take over the event and we are so pleased the hard work paid off! We were thrilled to see the huge number of visitors, stallholders and organisations support the event and The Joshua Tree. This wouldn't have been possible without our sponsors Beauty Works, Corkills and Happy Little Soles."

"The money raised from the event will go towards continuing the support to families affected by childhood cancers, as the referrals we are receiving are of a record high with over 90 new referrals in 2022 alone.”
