This year saw another success for the The Early, Early Christmas Fair, raising more than £30,000 for ABF The Soliders’ Charity. In 2014 we introduced a new format to the annual event, with an additonal afternoon on the Tuesday, which encouraged a record number of attendees and a ‘sold out’ preview evening the night before the official event.
As always, the fair was buzzing with hundreds of shoppers, enjoying the wonderful array of unusual stalls, delicious lunches and teas. This year saw more than 90 stalls attend the event.
“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.”
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.
