On a perfect day in early August (not too hot and dry all day) we were at Earley Green Fair. The main focus of the Fair is, as its name suggests, Green things. So lots of stalls promoting the environment, animal welfare, plants, recycling etc, etc.
We had 3 spaces there selling our left overs from last year's Toy Project - those items not suitable or just a bit too scruffy or items that turned out to be for adults rather than for children - along with general bric-a-brac, books and a fantastic raffle.
Friend of the committee, Steve, also used a bit of our space to sell his jams and chutneys and then very kindly donated his proceeds to us - thanks Steve!
It was a very profitable day with just over £800 being raised and with £245 from Steve we cleared £1,000 for the day. We also sported our new gazebo for the first time.
We'll be there again next year so make a note in your diary for August 1st 2020 and find us by Maiden Erlegh Lake.
This is where we share our news and inspiring stories of how people have supported us.
