Autumn fayre run by local women raises more than £3,000 for good causes
Published on: 15 Nov 2017
On Saturday 14 October, two local residents, Jeanne Clements and Sian Allan held what has now become an established annual event, once again hosted at Shield Road school.
For the past three years two local charities - BRACE Alzheimer's Research and Filton Park Pre-School Playgroup - have been supported, with a third charity being chosen each year.
In the past the charities to benefit have been the National Autistic Society, Meningitis Research Foundation and the Bristol Children's Hospital Burns Unit.
This year's charity was Headway Bristol, a local charity helping to improve the lives of those affected by brain injury.
The organisers were delighted to be able to give each of the three charities an amazing £1,050 each.
The Autumn Fayre included shopping stalls, an Auction, games, tombolas, raffle and a very popular Cafe.
Local school children were invited to participate in a Decorate a Leaf competition and the winners were Dexter Woodward from Shield Road Primary, Isabelle Clark from Wallscourt Academy and Ella Ponter from Charborough Road Primary.
Both ladies would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported the event and to all the volunteers who helped on the day to make it such a success.
