Our Spring Fair 2019 on 11th May was a fantastic day.
Well over 550 people came along to enjoy a fabulous barbecue, tasty pancakes and great company. Our fabulous volunteers provided wonderful stalls, with a great array of plants, cakes and books flying off the shelves. We had one or two spring showers to dodge but it was mainly glorious spring weather and the garden looked glorious. Thanks to everyone’s generosity the fair raised over £3000 to help our work – a great result.
Something for everyone
There was definitely something for everyone. Children made arts and crafts and looked for fish in our pond and adults relaxed in the massage area or by eating too much ginger cake. Our therapy dog Mickey was the belle of the ball, admired by everyone who cuddled and stroked him/her. The ever-popular tombola and raffle were a great success, with one happy little girl going home with a huge and gorgeous soft dog
A huge thank you as always to the amazing volunteer team that came together to make this year’s Spring Fair such a great event. All the money raised at our events goes to helping to support local people who are recovering from mental and physical ill health. Next up is our summer carnival at our site on De Frene road on Saturday 17 August. For more on this and other dates for your diary go to https://www.sydenhamgarden.org.uk/events/
