An exhibition by the Art Group was one of the main features at this year’s Craft Fayre. The Lunch Club team, led by Phil and Beryl, brought many different church groups and outside organisations together in one event which attracted a steady stream of visitors. Over £800 was raised which will benefit children in Kenya and Tanzania.
This year’s Craft Fayre filled our main hall with a variety of stalls and activities. The largest was an exhibition by the Art Group, who filled a whole wall with their work. Church groups and members, the Scouts and other stallholders displayed their work, sold goods and provided activities for children.
Over £800 was raised at the event which will be divided between the project to rebuild a Kindergarten in Kenya and the Amani Children’s Home which rescues street children in Tanzania.
In the smaller hall the catering team worked hard throughout to supply soup, rolls, cakes and drinks.
Cathie ran a “Guess the weight of the pineapple” competition and informed visitors about the Amani Children’s Home
