One month on and the financial picture is much clearer. The 2016 event brought in a surplus of £4,212.41 for disbursement to the 4 chosen charities. The Management Committee decided to use some of its reserves to bring that figure up to £4,500, matching the amount donated in 2015.
As a result cheques are on their way to the Big C (£1,485), the East Anglian Air Ambulance (£1,485), St Andrew’s Church Claxton (£1,350) and Claxton Village Hall (£180). We hope that each of these donations will make a difference, however small, to the charity receiving them, and once again thank everybody involved in this year’s Fair – organisers, helpers, stall holders and visitors.
