A Bury St Edmunds businesswoman is holding an ‘Early Christmas Market’ aimed at young professionals in aid of a charity close to her heart on Sunday.

Hayley Wallis, 29, who runsonline business Ivy-Joan, has lined-up 20 stalls featuring a range of wares and local businesses for the event at the Unitarian Meeting House, in Churchgate Street Bury.

It is in aid of Prostate Cancer UK as her dad Barry Smith is undergoing treatment for the disease.

The event, featuring jewellery, clothing, handmade gifts and soft furnishings, is aimed at young professionals as Mrs Wallis felt there was a gap in the market.

Mrs Wallis said her dad’s diagnosis was the main reason she started her business which specialises in personalised gifts, vintage items and clothing. She said: “I had been commuting to London working in fashion and realised I needed to be a bit closer to home.”

They will give a free gift away to the first 40 children on the day

The market is from 10.30am to 4.30pm. Visit www.ivyjoan.co.uk
