Xmas Flea Market Update

Posted by brilomax on November 25, 2018

18th November Xmas Flea Market

Our Christmas Flea Market on Sunday 18th November raised a wonderful £1,380 to enable us to continue rescuing and re-homing stray and injured cats and kittens.

Many thanks to everyone who donated items for our stalls, we had some lovely knitted Christmas tree ornaments made by Barbara who also donated a natural branch to display them on. I sprayed it silver to match our tablecloths and it looked lovely.
A big thank you to Jane who donated Father Christmas chocolate sleighs and lots of other edible sweets so we were able to have a sweet stall. Jane also donated small items and Christmas stockings so you could make your own stocking.

We had some amazing prizes for the Tombola, Dawn spent a lot of time and money making hot chocolate cones and other items as well as with Jenny’s help making up the baskets we save all year to be filled with your donations of toiletries.
We raised an amazing £300.00 on the Tombola alone.
The kitchen raised the next highest amount of money and again Dawn baked her wonderful cakes and with contributions from Salma, her lemon drizzle cake is lovely, Tom’s cakes and Sandra’s apple pies (missed out there it all went) we very nearly ran out of cakes the kitchen was that busy. Thanks to everyone who helped in the kitchen, unlike the rest of us that can take the weight off our feet now and again the kitchen crew are busy and on their feet all day from until 2.30 pm. They then have to clean up to leave the kitchen tidy, it’s a long day and we appreciate their help.

Many thanks to Jenny who always works like a Trojan unloading the car and getting everything on the tables before we open at 9am.
We could really do with more help first thing for a couple of hours from 7am until 9 am, putting the tables up and unloading the cars as Brian and I are not getting any younger and finding it hard going. If you can offer help for our next Flea Market in February please ring Christine on 01772 750263 after 6pm any evening.

A big “thank you!” to you all.

We are always looking for volunteers to help on the day, can you spare a couple of hours? We have a very friendly group of volunteers but could always use a few more helping hands.

Could you bake some cakes for us?

Give us a call on 01772 750263 if you would like to help in any way.

Needless to say we have now run out of good quality prizes for the Tombola and will need to collect many more prizes for our next Flea Market (Sunday 10th february 2019).

So please keep the donations coming.

If you have any items to donate, please Tel Christine on 01772 750263 or Sylvia on 01772 716837.

To book a stall call Christine on 01772 750263.

Thank You!    🙂
