Evelina London Zip

The Evelina Zip Christmas market

The Evelina Zip Christmas market

Evelina London held its first ever Christmas market on Thursday 1 and Friday 2 December to support the fundraising efforts of our daredevil Evelina Zippers!

The hospital grounds played host to a selection of Christmas stalls, as well as carol singers from Rock Choir and a vintage fire engine provided by the London Fire Brigade.

Thanks to everyone who came down to cheer on our zippers, and to everyone who shopped at these stalls which donated some of their proceeds to support the hospital.
