This year’s Arts and Crafts Fair featured an exhibition by the Art Group and a wide range of stalls offering an opportunity to admire, try and buy a wide range of crafts. Over £900 was raised, to be shared between two excellent causes.
Thank you to everyone who came and supported this event and especially to Phil and Beryl and the team of hardworking helpers who organised it. There was a steady stream of visitors throughout and the helpers providing soup, rolls, cake and drinks were kept especially busy at lunchtime.
All proceeds are being divided between St Mary’s Hospice and the Amani Children’s Home street children project in Tanzania.
