DOORS opened for the Rockbourne Fair today - with new late night shopping hours. 

The annual boutique shopping experience, at Salisbury Racecourse, raises money for the Stars Appeal.

The fair is open from 2pm to 9pm today for late night shopping, as well as 9.30am to 5pm tomorrow (Thursday, October 17), and 9.30am to 1pm on Friday, October 18.

The fair prides itself on the breadth of the offering, with something for all ages and for those with pocket money spend through to those looking for that special gift.

Each year, projects funded by the charity help thousands of local people at Salisbury District Hospital to get better faster, return home sooner and have a more positive hospital experience.

The charity is aiming to raise £1million this year to fund projects which offer direct, practical support to patients and their families, over and above what the NHS provides.

These include cancer support, help for older and dementia patients, a child friendly children’s ward and parents accommodation, Hospital Chaplains, free Wi-Fi and advanced equipment in key areas such as cancer surgery, cardiac care and the Neonatal Unit as well as enhancing the patient environment across the Hospital.
