A special celebration will be held to commemorate the Cotton Tree Markets’ 22nd year in operation and change of management on Sunday, 18 November.
Bloomhill Cancer Help, the newly appointed managers of the Cotton Tree Markets, will host the event from 7am to 12pm, offering a range of activities including kids face painting, learn to play the bongo drums, fairy floss and raffles with great prizes to win.
Bloomhill’s General Manager, Mervat Thompson said Bloomhill were very excited and looking forward to building and enhancing the markets and providing additional support to the local Sunshine Coast community.
“Bloomhill is committed to building strong partnerships and creating a fantastic, progressive market with a full-program of fresh new activities,” Mervat said.
“We aim to provide a market that meets the needs of all involved including retailers, stallholders, customers and the broader community of Cotton Tree,” Mervat said.
The Cotton Tree Markets operate every Sunday from 7am to 12pm at King Street, Cotton Tree and feature a range of local fashion, homewares, toys, sculptures, skin care, jewellery, art and crafts plus plenty more.
“This is an important new venture for Bloomhill and will help increase the funds available to help us support more people with cancer on the Sunshine Coast,” Mervat said.
Revenue from stallholder site fees is placed back into the community through Bloomhill’s services and programs, enabling Bloomhill to provide support to a greater number of people during their time of need.
“By shopping at the Cotton Tree Markets you are helping to support those with cancer on the Coast,” Mervat said.
Bloomhill Cancer Help is a Sunshine Coast based charity and provides support and assistance to those affected by cancer. Operated by a team of dedicated staff and hundreds of volunteers, Bloomhill offers counselling, transport to appointments, respite care and a range of complementary therapies and other practical help.
“We invite everyone to come down and join in the celebrations, enjoy the markets and the wonderful shopping and cafes in the Cotton Tree precinct,” Mervat said.
“Some of the stallholders will also be holding special promotions on the day, perfect for early Christmas shopping or a treat for yourself,” Mervat said.
“We are always on the lookout for new and unique stallholders, so please contact us if you would like to register your interest,” Mervat said.
