City charity MacIntyre is hoping for good weather and a big turn out at their Spring Fair on May 5

If they get both it will mean a great deal of money raised for their scheme to redevelop their site at Great Holm.

The event will take place at Great Holm from 10am to 3pm, with a vintage craft fair and many other attractions in the Moot Hall and outdoor activities around the complex, including a car boot sale for bargain-seekers and a bouncy castle for the kids.

MacIntyre’s well-known coffee shop at Great Holm will also be open for business, providing refreshments and acting as a meeting point.

The charity, which has its national headquarters in central MK and supports more than 170 disabled adults around the city, is raising money to redevelop the 25-year-old Great Holm centre to ensure they are able to meet future needs and also provide appropriate facilities for the profoundly disabled.

Anna Perry, Head of Operations, said that with or without good weather, she was confident the local community would turn out to support them and enjoy a real community event.

She said: “It is important to us that the Spring Fair is a success. This redevelopment scheme will mean that MacIntyre will continue to be at the forefront of service provision for disabled people, but we are only at the very beginning and we need to raise every penny we can.”
