A note from the BMSTC Link Group -Christmas Fayre 15th November


CHRISTMAS FAYRE
15 November 2008, 1 - 3pm

Once again the Link Group is organising the annual Christmas Fayre and we are writing to you as members of the Centre to ask for your support with this event. The Link Group work hard during the year arranging various events to raise money for the Centre and would very much like more members to become involved.

Please support our efforts by donating any of the following:
A prize for the raffle or tombola. Any new, unused, items would be very welcome.

Soft Toys which can be used as prizes.

Toys for the Lucky Dip and presents from Santa.

Wine for prizes in the Wine Raffle

Cakes to serve with tea and coffee on the day and for people to buy and take home.

Bric-a-Brac Stall Items to sell

If you have none of the above, a £1 donation would be appreciated. Please give this to Tracy or Jackie and ask them to pass it on to a member of the Link Group.

There is a labelled plastic dustbin in the reception area at the Centre into which donated items can be placed. Wine should be given direct to Trish Wright or handed to Tracy or Jackie who will pass it on to her. Cakes should be brought along on the day, or a day or two before.

Other ways you can help
Are you or any of your family and friends available to help on the day? We need able-bodied people to help set up the tables, They would need to arrive at 9 am and help for a couple of hours . Also help is needed at the end of the day (dismantling tables and clearing up) from about 3pm to 5pm. If you or anyone you know could help with this (or in any other way)there will be a volunteers' form at the Centre for you to complete or please phone the Centre.

Please come along on the day with your friends and family. You will find lots of stalls with all sorts of things to buy and delicious cakes to eat in or take away. Tea, coffee and cold drinks will also be available. For the children there will be a lucky dip and, of course,Santa will be there too!

Many thanks.
