The Christmas Bazaar that was held in the Village Hall on Sunday 24 November was a resounding success! With the help of my co-partner Sheila Brown and volunteers we contacted various crafters/ fundraisers both in Monks Eleigh and areas as far as Wickham Market. Our aim was to source as many talented vendors as we could. We advertised in our local magazines, also on Facebook/ Instagram. Sheila made some amazing posters to distribute, in local businesses, shops and farm stores. We had 18 tables of amazing talent from jewellery, ceramics, hand-made items, Christmas crafts/ decorations/gifts, toys, artwork etc.
The refreshments were collecting for 'Stand Up to Cancer'
The main charity benefactor - East Anglian Children's Hospice received a donation of £220. Below is a selection of images from the event (with thanks to John Naylor).
