Chairman's Charity Christmas Fayre
Friday November 13th 10.00am 3.00pm
Committee Rooms, Civic Centre, Pershore
Organised by WDC Cllr Mrs Anna Mackison, the fayre has now become a firm fixture on the chairman’s fundraising list. It was a great day, very well supported, considering the weather was somewhat inclement and we raised a total of £237. Many thanks to Anna, my supported charities, Evesham shopmobility, Droitwich Canals Trust and Pershore Riverside Youth Centre are very appreciative.
Driving force Anna Mackison with husband George.
Anna produces amazing and unique jewellery.

Diana Wiseman-Clarke produced a range of books to shame many a bookseller. There was a lovely book called ‘Dear Father Christmas’ all about a little girl called Holly. Well, we had to buy that, didn’t we.

Our final stall was Chocolate Deli Handmade Chocolates. Individual chocolate to die for, rather sums up this stall. They also had some super gift ideas, all centred around chocolate. Lovely 🙂

Thanks to everyone who came, stallholders, WDC staff and general public. I must also mention my secretary Karen Peters and our media team, who did all the posters, advertising, invitations, everything to help make this the success it was. Anna, you will have to do another one next year, you’re on a roll.
