A CHARITY craft fair takes place at a shopping centre later this month.

Clacton Factory Outlet, in Stephenson Road West, is hosting the event for Cancer Research UK from May 23 to 26.

It will include stalls selling handmade floral decorations and butterflies, original oil paintings and personalised wooden items.

Centre manager Allan Hassell said: “All our customers love seeing the marvellous craft offerings, as well as helping to raise funds for such a fantastic cause just by shopping at the fair.”
