The annual Saanich Peninsula Hospital Auxiliary Christmas Bazaar and Craft Fair is quickly approaching and the proof is in the Christmas pudding.

Members of the auxiliary gathered recently to prepare numerous puddings for the big event that has helped to support the Saanich Peninsula Hospital since 1974.

“Since its inception the auxiliary has contributed (around) $1.5 million to our local hospital for medical equipment, furnishings and patient comfort,” said Enid Burns, public relations convener for the auxiliary.

The bazaar takes place Saturday, Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Mary Winspear Centre. Burns noted some of highlights include hand-made crafts, baking, jams and jellies and an enlarged art display which is new this year.

Admission is by donation and  all proceeds go to the Saanich Peninsula Hospital.
