The organisers of the annual Cornwall Macmillan Christmas Fair have revealed the new 2015 limited edition jute shopping bag.

Featuring a distinctive blue and cream, maritime inspired design, the bag has been especially designed for the 2015 Fair by Cornish homewares company Cream Cornwall.

Sponsored by Lillicrap Chilcott, a long-standing supporter of the Fair and Cornwall Macmillan, the bag will be available at the fair in return for a donation of £3 to Macmillan Cancer Support in Cornwall.

“We are delighted to be supporting the Christmas Fair and Macmillan in Cornwall for another year,” said Lillicrap Chilcott director, Ian Lillicrap.

“With nine people in the Isles of Scilly and Cornwall hearing the devastating news that they have cancer every day, it is a cause close to all our hearts.”

The Christmas Fair will be held at the Eden Project, on November 12.
