Dates: Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th November 2014 10am–4pm
Event: Langlands Christmas Craft Fair
Location: Langlands Garden Centre, York Road, Shiptonthorpe, YO43 3PN
Amount raised: £180.30

We attended this event at a local garden centre for the first time this year, which was held in the potting shed. There were plenty of stalls there and it had a good Christmassy vibe. This was the first of our Christmas events that we took our hand-made items to (made by Maria, Louise & Christine) - Pom Pom Snowmen, gift tags and tree decorations together with many other items that had been donated to the Charity, some of which had been made. The Saturday was a steady day with visitors to the stall throughout the day but the Sunday was a little more quiet.

We managed to sell a number of the hand-made items, loom band characters and bracelets, toiletries, gift bags and other donated items. We even had a lady on another craft stall who donated some items to us.

A big thank you to Christine and John for volunteering for this event and thanks to everyone who came along to see us. Our Christmas outfits also went down very well!!!
