Dates: Friday 16th to Sunday 18th October from 9am to 5pm
Event: Pickering 1940s Weekend
Location: Pickering Showground, Malton Road, Pickering, YO18 8EA
Amount raised: £403.01

We attended this event for the second year running and it was another good year. We had just started to make the spirit light bottles and our friend Chris from the next stall bought one even before we were fully set up. We had a lot of very nice glassware and this sold very well, along with our handmade cake stands and china the sales of which managed to raise 104.50. We also raised 174.60 from various donated items and still managed to raise 35.50 from loom band sales.

Everyone was dressed up again, including us, which gives the event a really nostalgic feel. We met some lovely people, especially some of the stallholders whom we had met last year and either bought items from us or made a donation to the Charity. A big thank you to Dawn who organises the event for all her help.
