A great day despite the weather!
Many thanks to everyone who supported us at our shopping event at Berrow Village Hall on Sunday April 22nd 2012.
We were delighted by the response from the public and stall holders for helping us work towards our goal of a future free from the fear of breast cancer.
As well as raising awareness, their kindness and enthusiasm enabled us to raise £400 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Plants, books, cakes, pottery, bags, beauty treatments, sweets, jewellery, cards, sock puppets and nappy cakes were just some of the gifts and offerings available from the 20 plus stalls.
Plus every stall holder ensured a successful raffle by donating fab items to the prize table.
A visit from the Mayor and Mayoress, along with local MP Tessa Munt was very much appreciated, although we believe they all declined a go on the inflatable ‘Terror Slide’ due to damp conditions!
Here is a link to a news article with some pics of the event:
In fact, everyone thought the day went so well, we are holding another at the same venue on November 18th 2012- so please do put it in your diary for the opportunity of some fabulous Christmas pressies! We even think we'll be able to arrange a visit from Santa!!!
Here are some more pics taken on the day!

|Our Tombola stall was generously supported - thanks to everyone who bought tickets!|
|Another twitter friend, Jon from @LivnTheCream brought his vintage ice cream trike along (it wasn't the warmest day but we think that's a blue glove he's wearing and not a really cold hand!)|

Once again, many many thanks to everyone who helped make the event happen.
Maybe see you at our next one in November?
