A huge thank-you to everyone who came to the Family Festive Fayre at Chatham Green on Saturday 7th December 2013 and all the fabulous volunteers who made the event such a success.  Over 250 children participated in activities with their families, ranging from our Magical Reindeer Nature trail through to a visit to Father Christmas in our yurt, with donkey rides and nature crafts to boot.
We are still calculating the proceeds of the event, but took over £1,200 on the day plus pre-booked ticket sales added a further £350.00.    Thank you so much to everyone who came and supported, either through donations of time (particularly Coutts Bank and Essex Army Cadets – as well as our army of local volunteers), delivered activities or provided entertainment and of course huge thanks to Father Christmas who fitted a visit to Chatham Green into his busy December schedule.
We plan to build on the success of this event with other family themed fun and activity days throughout 2014.  Check back on our website regularly or sign up for our free newsletter.
We can’t stress this enough – our strength as a charity is entirely dependent on the goodwill, care and generosity of our supporters and we thank each and every one of you.
