Sunny Coast Market On Every Sunday of the Year
The Cotton Tree Markets is a selection of various talented local stallholders who come together every Sunday from 7am to 12 noon. The markets are 100% run by volunteers. This market not only supports the Sunshine Coast's local artisans, designers and inventors, but also supports people living with cancer. Running weekly for over 20 years, this Sunshine Coast market is friendly and community-based.
Local artisans sell their own unique and creative works. Some of the great gifts and original home wares you can pick up include:
and much more.
The hunt for that perfect gift or a bargain is a huge part of the attraction of local markets. You are never sure what you might find. And, at the Cotton Tree Markets, you will be entertained by local performers while you are exploring.
Bloomhill Cancer Care
Bloomhill Cancer Care is a not-for-profit organisation which supports people living with cancer. Operated by a dedicated team of professional staff and assisted by a large number of committed volunteers, the emphasis is on the integration of different forms of treatment and therapy. Bloomhill represents a unique blueprint for client care, supporting people to manage their prescribed medical cancer therapy, as well as their carers to manage the many demands required of them. Bloomhill works closely with acute cancer care services, general practitioners, community nursing services and other health care professionals to help build a holistic approach to the care of the person affected by cancer. They have a clear understanding of the range of needs identified by people at all parts of the cancer journey, and are as able to support people at point of diagnosis as into extended periods of survivorship or through a palliative journey.
