Two Hemel Hempstead women who both suffer from a form of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome are holding a fundraising Christmas Fete in aid of Ehlers-Danlos Support UK.

The Christmas Fete is being run by Rose Waterman and Sharon Whitehorn at St Paul’s Church, Highfield, from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday, December 5.

There’s a chance to meet Santa at 2pm, when children can have their photos taken with him, and there will be lots of other children’s entertainments, including reindeer mask decoration.

Stalls include local, Christmas crafts, a cake stall, and seasonal hot chocolate, tea and coffee supplied by a Hemel Hempstead firm.

Games include tombola, Splat the Rat, lucky straws, Guess the name of the Teddy, Guess the weight of the Cake and lucky dip.

The event will be hosted by Radio Dacorum. Entry is 20p and children get in free.

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a genetic disorder in which the structure of connective tissue is abnormal.

This results in abnormally fragile and hyper-extensible tissues throughout the body which can lead to a range of symptoms.
