With some apprehension about the weather, we arrived bright and early to set up our stall. With cars full of boxes of ginger biscuits, ginger jam, ginger beer, vouchers for gin cocktails, tours round gin distilleries and over 100 bottles of gin we knew we had some fantastic prizes all donated by volunteers, clients, local businesses and friend and neighbours.
The May Fair Committee team of Michelle Lomas, Michelle Foo and Laura Simpson worked tirelessly all day, supported by an army of volunteers; a huge thank you to everyone who helped especially Tor Machado with her creative chalk paint skills, our new Chair Hannah Joyce who was with us all day, our wonderful clients who made the journey across The Green to find us and family and friends and local residents who spent lots of money on tombola tickets. Even our local MP Zac Goldsmith popped by and won a box of tea!
We raised a staggering £2386 on the day!
