Win a wedding worth 12,000
Helen Rollason Cancer Charity has joined forces with Hedingham Castle to put on a Vintage Wedding Fayre to help raise funds. And as part of the event, one lucky couple will win a wedding at Hedingham Castle, a prize package worth an amazing 12,000. This fabulous opportunity to win a wedding at Hedingham Castle is the star prize of a charity raffle, with the grand draw to take place at the Vintage Wedding Fayre on Sunday, June 5 and all proceeds going to the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity.
As well as offering this fantastic prize, Hedingham Castle is staging the Vintage Wedding Fayre to showcase all that is best about this latest trend in wedding style. With staff dressed to impress and an assorted range of exhibitors, there is certain to be something for everyone.
As part of the show, Elizabeth Avey Vintage Wedding Dresses will be showcasing a selection of beautiful and original gowns as well as sharing a wealth of experience for this genre. And the gentlemen have not been forgotten. One of the highlights of the day will be an aerial display performed by two Pitts Special Aerobatic Biplanes, originally dating from the 1940s. A host of vintage transport can also be on display to admire along the tree-lined drive
Visitors can also enjoy a scrumptious homemade treat within the vintage-themed tearoom in the castle while enjoying the melodies provided by The House of Sound entertainers featuring, among others, The Tootsie Rollers.
The Vintage Wedding Fayre takes place on Sunday, June 5 from 11am to 4pm at Hedingham Castle, near Halstead, CO9 3DJ. Admission to the fayre costs adults 4 and is free for accompanied under 16s. Raffle tickets are priced at 10 each. For more details,

Look out for a special spring in Chelmsfords Central Park
Helen Rollason Cancer Charity has been offering supporters the chance to remember a loved one by joining its Bloomin Spring campaign. The scheme, supported by The One Shows TV gardener expert, Christine Walkden, and sponsored by Bottle Green, has seen thousands of bulbs planted in Chelmsfords Central Park in memory of those who have died of cancer.
For 10, donators receive 25 bulbs to plant in memory of their loved ones and last November, Christine helped plant 28,000 daffodil and hyacinth bulbs in Central Park, with more to be planted this year. The bulbs will soon be appearing, flowering in blue and yellow Helen Rollasons favourite colours. Make sure you dont miss this spectacle in the centre of Chelmsford over the coming months and dont forget there is still time to get involved. Call 01245 514325 to donate to the Bloomin Spring campaign in memory of a loved one.

Raise 1 every time Essex Life is sold
To help support our Charity of the Year, Essex Life has launched a scheme to donate 1 to the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity for each copy of the magazine sold.
Any outlet that currently sells copies of Essex Life, or a new retailer that wishes to start selling the magazine, can get involved in the scheme. Already Tiptree jam makers, Wilkin & Sons, have helped raise money for the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity as Essex Life donated 1 from each sale of Essex Life magazine at the prestigious jam makers tearoom in Tiptree. To get involved, contact the editor on julian.read@archant.co.uk.
