I am chuffed to announce that the amount raised on Saturday at Thame Dolls House & Miniatures Fair for Breast Cancer Campaign was a magnificent £2,520.66 (and theres still a bit more to come)!! As we are slap bang in the middle of a recession this makes it even more amazing. Huge thanks to everyone who contributed.
I would just like to give special thanks to these two exceptional ladies who have run the charity sales table at Thame from the very beginning.... Melodie and Jill, two mates of mine who I have known for literally years. Visitors to Thame Fair will immediately recognise them.
The charity stall was totally overwhelmed by both customers and continual donations that just kept on coming so the volunteers were totally rushed off their feet. Jill and Melodie said that in all the years they have run the sales table, they have never know such a constant stream of customers or for donations of items to be so plentiful...it was simply amazing.
Members of the Thame Dolls House Club rallied with extra help plus my daughter and another very special lady who will probably blush hugely when she reads this - Norma, a visitor from Wiltshire, literally rolled her sleeves up and stepped behind the stand to serve for a couple of hours too.
THANK YOU LADIES - YOU WERE ALL BRILLIANT!!!!
PHEW........SO THERE YOU GO, ALL OVER FOR ANOTHER YEAR.
However I understand from the organisers that the next Thame Dolls House & Miniatures Fair is already booked for Saturday 18th February 2012....so roll on next year!!!
Now that my injured wrist is healing, I can embark properly on loading up new unsold stock to KT Miniatures website. I am starting with the handmade items....more news about them tomorrow.
