Tourism chief praises generosity of Bath Christmas Market visitors
The head of Bath’s tourism body has praised the generosity of visitors to last year’s Christmas Market which raised over £6,000 for charity.
Chief Executive of Bath Tourism Plus, Nick Brooks-Sykes said: “Although 2012 was economically difficult for many people, they still give generously to charities at our event – I think it is the Christmas spirit it evokes in people.”
A free stall at the Christmas Market was shared by 16 local charities, including MacMillan Cancer Support, Bath Mind and Bath City Farm.
Market organisers Bath Tourism Plus said more than £1,300 was raised at the stall on one day alone.
