Ham Parade Market supports a different local charity each month, providing a free-of-charge stall for a charity to raise awareness and/or funds. In addition, we run a raffle at each market with the proceeds donated to that month’s charity. Prizes are donated by stallholders and local businesses. If you would your charity to be considered for a market stall, please contact Lex via email@example.com.
February’s charity is Petersham & Ham Sea Scouts – one of the oldest scout troops still in existance and provider of wonderful outdoor activities for many of our local children. Come and find out how you can get involved. The Scouts will be raising money at HPM for a new all-purpose Scout hut for the whole community to use. Improved facilities and access will provide facilities for children with disabilities and enable the boats to be used in all seasons.
December’s charity was Ham’s Cassel Hospital which provides vital mental health services and support for adults and young people in our community. Described as a ‘lifeline’ for families, the Cassel is a one-of-a-kind NHS Centre for Excellence. The Cassel Hospital raised £778.90 in raffle ticket sales and donations from Ham Parade Market shoppers.
November’s charity was Momentum, a Kingston-based charity supporting families in Surrey and South-West London whose children have cancer or a life-limiting condition. Momentum raised £330 as our dedicated charity on 4th November.
October’s charity was Ham & Petersham SOS, a local care group for elderly and disabled residents of Ham & Petersham. They provide transport, weekly activities and monthly outings as well as practical assistance. They raised well over £300 at the first Ham Parade Market and importantly signed up some new volunteers too!

Charity stallholder FAQ
Where is the charity stall situated?
We’re not sure of the exact position of each stall in advance, but will be in touch with a map closer to the time.
Where can we park before and during the market?
Stallholders can drop off materials at the stall then leave the vehicle at one of two nearby car parks set aside for stallholders. You will need to provide your car registration details in advance. You will be given directions by one of the market management team when you arrive.
Will we be expected to take our rubbish away with us?
Yes. All stallholders need to take their rubbish away with them.
Will the stalls include a table or do I need to bring my own?
We can source a table if needed, but ideally you will furnish the stall yourselves.
