Another huge success for the The Early, Early Christmas Fair that once again raised huge funds for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, numbers reaching as much as £30,000. This was an outstanding result and with the new format with the extra afternoon on Tuesday encouraged record numbers through the door with a very successful ‘sold out’ Preview the night before. The money raised makes such a huge difference to our service men, women and families and the charity is so grateful to the support that this event receives every year.
The fair was buzzing with lots of keen shoppers set in a beautiful setting with a wonderful array of unusual stalls, delicious lunches and teas were served throughout this year and the preview evening supper was one of the best yet.
Caroline Cary, the Fair Organiser said: “I would just like to thank everyone who came and supported this event – to our dedicated volunteers, all the shoppers, stallholders, Chelsea Pensioners and to everyone involved in the event, without whom this could never take place with the success it currently enjoys. In particular, I would like to thank our sponsors, General Dynamics, Aspire Defence and Wiltshire Life, all of whom help so assiduously, year after year, to make it all possible.
