Southport Indoor Market's Birthday celebration took place on Saturday 6th July 2013. Art For Macmillan Cancer Support members were permitted use of a vacant stall in which to demonstrate their skills as artists, crafters and sculptors to raise money for the provision of care for cancer sufferes and their families.

Our demos are continuing throughout August and September and we would like to thank the market's management for this opportunity to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
