RNLI CRACKER OF A CHRISTMAS FAYRE
December 18 2014.
The RNLI Newhaven Christmas Fayre, held recently at the Hillcrest Centre, was another cracking success for the fundraising team. The event raised just over £1000.00, exceeding expectations and highlighting the local community’s continuing high regard of the volunteer lifeboat crew.
There was a high turn out of visitors to the Fayre, with many eager to keep Father Christmas busy and enjoy the festive cheer.
The Fayre was opened by Newhaven Academy Players and the entertainment continued with Haven Harmonies Choir delighting with their superb choices of Christmas song arrangements.
Vice Chairman of the Fundraising Society, Peter Mercer, said, “The Christmas Fayre has not raised over £1000.00 for many years and it was fantastic to see so many people having such a good time.”
The next fundraising event is being held at the Lifeboat House on Friday 30th January 2015 from 11.30am to 2.30pm, when, for only £3.50 per person, you are invited to a Winter Warmer of ‘Slurping Soup’ with cheese rolls.
