About the Collective

We are a group of makers, designers, producers and artists, offering unique handmade products for sale.

We meet on the second Saturday of every month at Holywood Old School.

Our ethos is to bring together the best locally-made products in a regular high quality market, that supports not only our local artisans, but also our community through our work with local charities.

We’re a friendly bunch and love the buzz of a busy market day, so come and find out what we’re about, see an array of beautiful products, and grab a tea, coffee or spot of lunch in our vintage tearoom.

This month's charity partner...

 

AIR AMBULANCE NI

Air Ambulance NI, in partnership with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS), provides the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the region.

Serious or life-threatening situations can happen to anyone at any time and on average, every single day in Northern Ireland, one individual finds themselves in desperate need of AANI.

The charity’s operational helicopter carries a crew compiling pilot, doctor, and paramedic, 365 days of the year operating for twelve hours every day.  They attend some of the most traumatic medical incidents across the province and are dedicated to delivering the very best possible pre- hospital care, both at the scene and whilst transferring the patient to the most appropriate hospital for their specific injuries.

The EC135 helicopter can get anywhere in the province in approximately twenty-five to thirty minutes and the rapid response is vital in an emergency situation.  If a patient reaches hospital within the Golden Hour (60 minutes after their injury) their chances of survival are dramatically increased.

What is not widely known is that AANI is a charity.  Each day costs in the region of £5,500 and £2m is needed each year to keep our air ambulance service operational.  The charity rely entirely on support from the public and local businesses.

 

Volunteers will be on hand with further information throughout the day.
