Took place on Friday and Saturday

How Clean is Your House? star Kim Woodburn opened the Hospice in the Weald Christmas Market on Friday.

Ms Woodburn, who recently took part in Hotel GB on Channel 4, also set up her own stall selling fashion and TV memorabilia to help raise funds for the charity.

The TV star was an expert sales woman and stock ran low within the first hour.

She said: “It is a privilege to support Hospice in the Weald. It is a local charity giving help and support to those people with life-limiting illnesses and their families. The Hospice does such good work that it deserves as much help as possible from all of us. I enjoyed selling some of my own personal bits and bobs to raise as much money as possible for the Hospice. I was also able to pick up a bargain or two for myself from the many stalls.”

Ms Woodburn joined over fifty other stalls and over 1000 people attended the Christmas Market during the two days, raising over £18,000.

Emma Whittington, event co-ordinator at Hospice in the Weald said: “This is the eighth year we have held a Christmas Market at Hospice in the Weald and we are delighted with the amount of people that came and the fantastic amount raised.”
