We had a CHRISTMAS FAIR FUNDRAISER and it was a great success! Many little elves, reindeers and Santas came, and we ate delicious curry, drank hot chocolate with cream and sprinkles, had loads of amazing home-made cakes and children decorated a record number of cookies!
We also had stalls selling toys, books and hand made products. Our photographer was offering a Christmas photo session (similar to the one we did back in October) and we managed to raise a nice amount of money to help us to have our bathrooms refurbished. 
Thank you for everyone who helped to make this a wonderful day for all!

Thank you so very much for joining us today for our Photo Fundraiser!

We loved seeing familiar and new faces, and really hope you enjoyed yourself today! Our volunteer photographer had a blast photographing every single family, and we hope you all will love your family Christmas photos! 

We'd also like to thank to all the lovely moms who baked cakes, bread and brought decoration, and helped us on the day. You ladies, you rock - yes, you know who you are! We also had a dad who took upon himself to clean the gutters while there at the start of the day, you mister, you're amazing and we want to say THANK YOU!

In terms of fundraising - it was a huge success, we raised over £375 and we now have enough money to cover our BIG PAINT PROJECT (that runs from the 22nd until the 29th of October) and might be able to spend some funds on having the bathrooms decorated too!

Again, thanks so much to everyone who came, for helping us and raise money to make Burghley Road Children's Centre even better! You are amazing!
