Christmas Fayre - Request letter from our Link Group

Hello Everyone!

Christmas Fayre - 24th November 2012, 1pm to 3.30pm
Once again we are planning the Christmas Fayre and this year local MP Alok Sharma will perform the opening ceremony. As usual we are asking for your help. Please will you donate 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.
  • 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.
  • Jewellery for our jewellery stall
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT NEED BRIC-A-BRAC THIS TIME. WE HAVE SO MUCH THAT STORAGE IS BECOMING A PROBLEM!
There is a box under the desk in the reception area at the Centre into which donated items can be placed. Please give wine to Tracy or Jackie for safe keeping. Please bring cakes along on the day, or a day or two before. It would be helpful if cakes could have a label saying what they are and whether they contain nuts.
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 from 9 am to 11 am. 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 allsorts of things to buy and delicious cakes to eat in or take away. Tea, coffee and cold drinks will also be available and of course Santa will be there in his grotto.
Many thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the Fayre.
