Craft Day – results!

Thankyou to everyone for helping to make Saturday's Craft Day such a success - from the many visitors (we think about 200!) to the clever art and crafty people who shared their skills and talents and the Friends of Helmdon Primary School who provided the delicious refreshments. Thankyou also to Helmdon Church.

Everyone thoroughly enjoy the day and commented on the friendly and lively atmosphere as well as the quality and skills of the arts and crafters. There were 40 clever arty, crafty people involved in the day which is amazing!

Thanks to the generosity of the arts and crafters and that of the visitors we raised money during the day for the following charities and groups -

Rainbows Children's Hospice in Loughborough,

Naomi House Children's Hospice near Winchester

St Mary Magdalene Church, Helmdon

Helmdon Primary School

Katharine House Hospice, Banbury

Knitted Knockers UK

At the moment the overall total raised is £850, which is amazing and of this £430 will go to Rainbows Children's Hospice and £175 to St Mary Magdalene Church, Helmdon.

It was a great day, so thank you once again. (Louise Stothard and team)
