THOUSANDS of visitors are expected in Llandudno for the Celtic Winter Fayre which starts tomorrow.

Nuns from St Elisabeth Convent in Minsk, Belarus, will be paying a return visit to the fayre.

The convent helps people with psychiatric problems and disabilities and houses a number of workshops in the grounds which produce candles, ceramics, pictures made of semiprecious stones, embroideries, woodwork and metalwork.

Sister Tatiana said: "Two of the sisters and helper Leonid will drive the 3,000-mile round trip to visit Llandudno Celtic Fayre with an aim of fundraising for the disadvantaged in Minsk.

"We will come by van with our workshops' products and also try to visit some parishes, abbeys and some cathedrals' shops and offer our items for sale."

Barry Mortlock of the Celtic Winter Fayre Committee said: "It is fantastic for the Celtic Fayre to be associated with the excellent work these kind, sympathetic nuns undertake for disadvantaged children and adults in the city of Minsk."
