Christmas Fair 2017
Thank you to everyone that came along to our Christmas Fair on Saturday. We hope you enjoyed it!
It was a fabulous day, and we raised a lot of money, which will be used to benefit the children.
Children got to see Santa and his elves in his Grotto. The choir sang beautifully. There were lots of craft activities, fun & games and external stalls for everyone to enjoy. There was even snow during our festive singalong at the end! The festive Mulled Wine, Baileys Hot Chocolate, Sausage Rolls and Mince Pies were very popular.
We couldn't have done it without your help and support, so a massive thank you to everyone that came along, sent in their donations (we were totally overwhelmed by your generosity) and supported this event!
Well done and thank you also to everyone that entered our festive "Decorate A Bag" competition. This was very popular and we were amazed by the creativity of the entries. It was very difficult to choose a winner from each year group, as everyone did a fabulous job!
Finally a personal "Thank You" from me to all the Committee members and volunteers (staff, local community members & parents) that give up their own time to work tirelessly throughout the year to organise and put on fabulous fundraising events to benefit the children. We really are a great team!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy 2018 from myself and the Committee!
Thank you for your continued support. Please contact us via email with any feedback or suggestions for future fundraising ideas etc.
