Christmas Fair

Christmas Fair – Wednesday 2nd November 2011, Figheldean

It’s that time of year when thoughts turn to Santa, turkey, Christmas Cake, presents and of course our Christmas Fair at Figheldean. It was good to see so many old friends again who came to support us and enjoy the wide variety of excellent stalls that were on offer. The hall was a buzz of activity as people wandered round, hunting for that unique gift. At the end of the day, the stunning sum of £1899 had been raised towards the continuing research into Cancer. A huge thank you to everyone.

Cream Teas

Cream Teas – 19th July 2011, Upavon House

It was lovely to see all of you who joined us at Upavon House for our Cream Tea afternoon on the 19th July. Despite the heavy showers that had been forecast, we were able to enjoy walking round the beautiful garden and to eat considerable amounts of scones with clotted cream and jam before the rain came.

The sum of £250 was raised during the afternoon, so thank you to everyone.

Coffee Morning

Coffee Morning – 6th June 2011, Collingbourne Kingston VIllage Hall

We were delighted to see so many of you at our Coffee Morning on the 6th June and hope you enjoyed meeting up with friends, as well as viewing the range of stalls that were tempting you to buy.

This was another hugely successful event, raising £678.50, so thank you to everyone for making it such an enjoyable day.

Fashion Show

Fashion Show – 17th March 2011, Bouverie Hall, Pewsey

Our Fashion Show on the 17th March proved to be a really popular event, with one hundred and sixty people joining us to watch the summer fashions being modelled on the catwalk.

It was lively, full of fun, laughter and even provided some youngsters from a local dance school to perform a special St Patrick’s Day Irish Dance to mark the occasion.

A huge thank you to Brigitte from the Viyella shop in Marlborough for making this event happen, to the models who looked superb and smiled through all their quick changes and finally to everyone who bought tickets and helped us to raise the stunning sum of £1562.  You were amazing.
