Chulmleigh Old Fair 2018!

Lottie and Caitlin with the Alden Gilson trophy and the envelope with their prize money!

Yesterday we had our fundraising stall at Chulmleigh Old Fair!  We had a big team effort this year!  This is the first time that Lottie, Caitlin and Becca had come to help on our stall.  Caitlin and Lottie have started volunteering for us recently.  Last Thursday they decided that they would make some decorations for the stall so they could enter the competition for the best stall in the market.  They worked really hard making ponies and rosettes, and special bunting to decorate the stall.  They wore riding hats and florescent jackets as part of the theme.  The judges were really impressed with their efforts and later on in the morning the town crier announced that People4Ponies won the Alden Gilson trophy for the best presented stall in the market!  Amazing effort and result for the girls!  Well done Caitlin and Lottie!  The girls are sharing the trophy between them...and they won a prize of £25...which they donated to the ponies...thank you girls! 

We also need to thank Archie for helping to get the stall loaded and set up and put away again at the end of the day, and to Archie's Mum who baked some cakes for us to sell.  Margaret was working at the yard yesterday and also did a lot of preparation work - organising the tombola and making jams and marmalades etc.  Ted and Jenny let us transport everything in their car as it was big enough to move everything we needed in one go.

Becca and the girls manned the stall so that Faye could go back to the yard to look after Rocky, who's been poorly, and to get the heavy yard work done.

The girls raised a total of £205 on the day for the ponies - such a brilliant effort - thank you so much to everyone!
