Dates: Friday 10th to Sunday 12th October 2014
Event: Pickering 1940s Weekend
Location: Northern Events Arena, Pickering
Amount raised: £462.90

We decided to attend this event for the first time and had a really good weekend. Everyone gets dressed up in 1940s attire, which is amazing to see and it feels like you have stepped back in time. We even managed to find a few items to get dressed up too. We took along items that had been donated to us over the years and these fit in with the theme of the weekend but also took along merchandise and the "ever popular" loom band bracelets, characters and accessories.

The Friday was a slow day and we wondered why we had agreed to attend the event but then Saturday arrived and we were rushed off our feet. We were fortunate to have some lovely "experienced" stall holders who had been several times to Pickering and they even helped us with some of our pricing and displays.

All in all we had a good weekend and need to make sure we have the right things for next year to be able to attend again.
