Summer Fete Success

June 2013 Summer Fete

Our Summer Fete was a huge success this year despite the bad weather and I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came to enjoy the day. I also appreciate all your help with bringing in bottles, T shirts, new and old toys and buying raffle tickets.

Last year's was a hot, beautiful day and raised around £880. This year, despite the terrible bad weather, we raised an amazing £2,509.05. This will be donated to our charity - The Auntie Foundation, and will help them to build a Pre-School in Mfuleni Township in South Africa for up to 100 children (which they need to raise £30,000 for). Hopefully next year 2 of our staff members will be going over to South Africa to see it being built!

Everyone at Silchester would like to say a huge ‘thank you very much’ to Denise, who is one of our Pre- School parents, for coming and supporting us and working on our stalls with her staff from Barclays Bank who are kindly going to double what we raised on the stalls they were working on.

Thank you for your continued support and helping us to raise money for a charity that is very close to our hearts.
