Great month of November

We have just had a fantastic month of November with money coming in from all sides.

We’ve had Sales, 3 Craft fairs, and a Race night all bringing in £660.49.

Then we have had various donations with another £406.36, and 8 monthly mandates with £62.50.

The total for the month is £1129.35. Thanks to everyone who bought, donated, helped in any way.

Wouldn’t it be great if that came in every month?

Craft Fair in the Pavilion, Birkenhead Park

I think the people in Birkenhead must be getting fed up with us by now. Only kidding—they have been very generous.

This was a new craft fair that hadn’t been there before and we were offered a free table as we are a charity. We couldn’t miss this opportunity to get to know other stall-holders and raise even more for the charity.

It was over the 2 days but only from 11:00am to 3:00pm. We finished the weekend taking £225.00.

Collection at Central Station AND Christmas Fair at Ashville Lodge

We really had our work cut out that day. 10:00am we landed at Central Station in Liverpool, set up the banners, started to collect until 12:00 noon when our relief crew arrived. Then we dashed to Ashville Lodge in Birkenhead to take part in the Craft Fair.

We had arranged to set the stall up on Friday and for someone to attend the stall for us till we arrived at 12:30pm. By 4:00pm we had had enough and were glad to see other stalls packing up. Altogether it was a very successful day; £341.80 from Central Station and £221.50 from the craft fair.

Craft Fair at The Pavilion in Birkenhead Park

This was our first real opportunity to display our goods at a Craft Fair. Held in The Pavilion in Birkenhead Park, it was supposed to be in a big marquee. Guess what? Someone forgot to order it. (D’oh!)

However, some thoughtful person managed to buy some gazebos and (nearly) everything worked out OK.

The weather was good and we managed to take about £200.
