The Lyndsey Dolls House Fair Report
The fair went very well and most of the Exhibitors seemed happy. Two new exhibitors joined us this time, Nordwain from County Durham and Karen Sanderson from the JMW Centre (Dolls House Shop) at Hemswell Cliff.
Alas the petrol crisis hit us slightly with people less willing to drive and use their fuel, so visitor numbers were slightly down – if it's not the weather it's the government!! Our local council have also prevented us putting boards around the area advertising the show – shame on them!
As it was the numbers through the door were about 250, and we raised another £206.00 for the Chemo unit at the Pilgrim Hospital. We will be handing over a 3rd cheque for £1000 to Jane the fundraiser. In total we have raised £1200 at our fairs for this extremely worthy cause.
So a big thanks to all that donated money and items.
