COLLECTION RECORD FROM SEAFORD ROTARY’S GENEROUS BOOTERS
April 28 2013.
The Rotary Club of Seaford has saluted the town's people for their generosity in making the first Car Boot, Craft and Produce Fair of the year at Martello Fields such a success.
Almost as much was received in donations as from the considerable revenue for stallholders' pitches - and it all goes, of course, to local worthy causes.
A fine, bright April day helped things along and although car parking and entry for customers was, as always, free, the vast majority was contributed to collecting buckets in exchange for this facility. In fact, it turned out to be a record amount of donations for these events.
Considering the current financial pressures on everyone, it was a wonderful effort.
Because all the money raised goes to deserving charities, the club remains adamant that the £8.00 fee for a pitch applies strictly to a single space. Howeve, the Club is striving all the time to make these Fairs better and better.
This year there will a total of seven Car Boot, Craft and Produce Fairs in 2013, with the final event scheduled for Sunday October the 6th
Work is already in hand for next month's event on Sunday May the 19th, which will see the first appearance of the year from much-admired local Music Man, Chris Foster, whose dulcet tones and popular melodies will fill the air. As usual there will fast food and ice cream available to buy and also Bouncy Castle entertainment for the youngsters.
