6th March, after much preparation the day of our Spring Fair finally arrived. There was a total of 26 stalls selling lots of different things, plus stalls for food and kids activities. It was lovely to see some of our longtime supporters and finally put faces to names and wonderful to find that quite a few people had turned up with bags full of donations too.
Special thanks to my dearest friend Meryam for absolutely slogging her guts out during the event and helping me to prepare for it. Thanks are also due to Louise and Susie for doing an amazing job at entertaining the kids and to Sharon for helping wherever needed. Thank you also to Helen and Phyl for their fabulous donations of jewellery and knits which we sold on our stall, to Pat for her very cute knitted toys and to Marion whose pretty bracelets arrived just in time.
I should also mention ‘Little Sweet Things 4 U’ which is a new cake company based in East London who specialize in individual and small home baked cakes, their range is extensive and includes Lemon pie, Cheese cake, Cupcakes and Tiramisu. I personally, am positively addicted to their Russian Chocolate Charlotte and my boys loved their waffles. This company attended our Spring Fair and very generously donated all of their takings to us- thank you so much Umm Hamza!
Most importantly thank you to everyone who came along and made the day a success, we raised a total of £625 so, I think all the hard work was worth it!
