Autumn Fair Fun & Fundraising

Crosby Soroptimists’ autumn fair was a great success, raising over £1,000.

Club members set up a variety of stalls, including a bottle tombola, books, ‘pre-loved’, lucky dip and handcrafted Hallowe’en decorations. There was, of course, a raffle – hampers full of tasty treats and toiletries. And henna hand-painting anyone?

The Soroptimists also ran a café throughout the day, with home-made cakes and scones.

The fair was organised in partnership with Susie of Bluebell Stalls, a local creative business. Soroptimists Sandy and Abby, who co-ordinated the event, acknowledged her help. “Several of Susie’s regular artisans took a stall, so there was a wide variety of crafts and skills on display. The hall was a-buzzing all day.”

As ever, the Soroptimists took the opportunity to set up Ping-Pong-Potty. This popular challenge is raising funds to ‘twin’ another toilet – this time in the new welcome centre at Lunt Meadows Nature Reserve.

All other proceeds from the fair will be distributed to local charities.
