McGoff Group supports charity Christmas Market in Urmston

Carol and Mark from the Urmston Partnership

Ahead of the Christmas holidays the Urmston Partnership has teamed up with lots of local businesses to arrange a charity Christmas Market on Saturday 16th December, from 10am until 4pm.

The pop up event is being facilitated and supported by the McGoff Group, with the Christmas Market taking place at the Market 41 site on Railway Road.

A full line up of entertainment has been confirmed, including Ruthie O’Brian singing Christmas songs and a Brass Band performing, as well as Santa’s Grotto and a couple of children’s fairground rides.

Delicious food will be available from Little Vees Catering, hot drinks from CofCof’s mobile coffee pod and Mulled Wine.


There will also be a selection of stalls from Urmston businesses and those from the surrounding areas, from wine and gin to sweets, cupcakes, paintings, candles and handmade gifts.

Money raised from Santa’s Grotto and the Mulled Wine will be donated to Changing Lives in Carrington, a non-profit animal rescue shelter established in 2020, passionate about driving positive change. All other money raised will be used by the Urmston Partnership to host more events as well as contribute towards improving the Christmas lights next year.

Darren Porter, Chairman of Urmston Partnership, comments: “There is such a vibrant community in Urmston and what better way to get everyone together at Christmas than a community market, that is not only fun for the whole family, but also raises money for a very worthy local charity and the town centre itself.

“The event has been supported by lots of the local businesses and independents, as well as the McGoff Group, and we hope that, following the success of the charity Christmas Market, we can do many more community-led events in 2024.”

Paul Danks from the McGoff Group adds: “Being an Urmston resident it is great to see the community coming together this Christmas and I am looking forward to attending the pop up event myself!

“The McGoff Group is keen to do more in Urmston in 2024 as we are currently speaking to Trafford Council about funding and/or grants regarding Market 41. I hope the charity Christmas Market is well attended, fun for all and lots of money is raised. The Urmston Partnership has done a superb job organising the event at such a busy time of the year.”

Urmston Partnership’s charity Christmas Market is taking place on Saturday 16th December, from 10am until 4pm, at Market 41, 5 Railway Road, Urmston, M41 0XL.
