Home-Start will be at Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Fair again this year, and we’re very pleased to be able to offer our supporters an exclusive ticket offer for the event.

Kirstie has long supported Home-Start and is one of our ambassadors. As well as attending our recent national convention and presenting our volunteers awards, Kirstie actively supports our annual Snowflake Appeal which runs from the beginning of November to end of January.

Each year Kirstie hosts a festival of craft and creativity at the beautiful venue of Hampton Court Palace. This year the Handmade Fair takes place on 16-18th September 2016.
