MASH’ Christmas Fair
Well, MASH’s 2015 Christmas fair was, as I had anticipated, a veritable festive celebration filled with seasonal cheer. The MASH team invited me along to this year’s gathering and after experiencing last year’s event, I simply had to volunteer to not only visit but to help out too. Imagine my delight when I was placed on no other than ‘the cake stall’. Home-baked scones, sumptuous cupcakes, indulgent vanilla sponge, they all certainly were a welcome accompaniment to the tea and coffee enjoyed on the day. Needless to say, the cake stall was a temptation nobody could resist.
Art & crafts
The charity’s art & crafts stall held a wealth of beautiful handmade jewellery, trinket boxes, ornaments and more. Many of the items had been made by service-users and it’s safe to say they will be treasured by their new owners. Everyone worked extremely hard on the day to make, not only the craft stall, but every stand, a roaring success.
Clothing, brick-a-brack & beauty
From fashion bargains and wonderful brick-a-brack to indulgent beauty products, there was literally something at MASH’s fair for everyone to enjoy. Stocking fillers, gifts for friends or a little treat whilst browsing, the atmosphere was filled with Christmas products and true Christmas spirit.
Everyone loves a raffle
Our gesture for the raffle table was luxury chutneys and preserves, which sat well amongst the other lovely prizes on offer. Must-have kitchen equipment, gorgeous toiletries, vouchers for generous giveaways and even Amir Khan signed boxing gloves, there truly were some fantastic items waiting to be snapped up by lucky winners.
