Easter Fayre Exceeds Expectations!

St John's Hospice Easter Fayre raises a record £25,000.
Tens of thousands of people flocked to the park at the end of St John's Wood High Street to make it the most successful Easter Fayre ever.
The event started in style as crowds queued in the sunshine to enjoy a fun filled family day of fairground rides, exclusive shopping and children's activities.
Dozens of stalls were selling clothes, jewellery and cosmetics along with delicious food including Greek Pastries, crepes and even haggis soup!
A lady bird ride, tea cups and mini train were enjoyed by hundreds of children, and some parents even braved the rides too!
The Easter Egg Hunt proved a huge success with over 600 children racing through the park to find clues and toddlers enjoyed digging up their eggs from the sandpit.
Meanwhile, popular children's TV character Peppa Pig delighted the children with special appearances throughout the day. She also treated them to a lucky dip gift to take home.
The Fayre had something for everyone - Face painting, colouring competition, 'beat the goalie' and candyfloss machine entertained visitors throughout the whole day.
St John's Hospice would like to thank everyone who attended and helped to make the event such a huge success as well as sponsors Hamptons International, Kinleigh Folkard and Hayward, OGR Stock Denton LLP Solicitors, Barclays and Westminster City Council.
The £25,000 raised will help provide free care for over 4,000 people in the local community this year.
