Christmas Fayre Raises Over £25,000
- Created on Monday, 07 December 2015 12:18
Our Christmas Fayre last Sunday has raised £25,000 for our patients and families. Hosted for the fourth year on St John’s Wood High Street, our annual event is always packed with Christmas fun and this year was no exception. We were delighted with how many people turned out on a wet morning to support the Hospice and get in the Christmas mood.
From plenty of gifts and home accessories, clothing and jewellery through to a selection of delicious food, the High Street hosted more than 80 stallholders from in and around London to tempt visitors.
Meanwhile children were spoilt for choice as the fayre flaunted donkey rides and many fairground rides. There were queues to meet and greet Peppa Pig and to see Father Christmas in Santa’s Grotto for the majority of the day.
“This is a fantastic total,’ explains Director of Fundraising Mark Thomas. ‘From the committee of volunteers, stallholders and business sponsors, through to the visitors themselves, we’re very grateful to everyone for their continued support.”
Our next big event will be Light Up A Life next Wednesday December 9. This cherished annual occasion provides a moment amidst the Christmas rush to remember loved ones no longer with us at a short inclusive service. For more information and make you dedication onlne click here.
Our two-day Paddington Christmas Fayre will be held at Paddington Recreation Ground on the weekend of December 12th and 13th.
