Merton Macmillan has moved their flagship fundraising event online due to Covid-19.

The annual event which usually takes place at Sacred Heart Hall in Wimbledon, will offer a range of gifts on sale through website Brilliant Little Brands.

Last year alone, the fair raised over £11,000 to support those affected by cancer, and despite going virtual, the team hopes to raise "more than ever."

The products and services on sale range from clothing, to food & drink, accessories and presents for pets.

10% of all sales will go to Macmillan Cancer Support.
