Students from the Elmwood College Supported Learning Department held their annual Christmas Fayre recently.
This years Fayre proved to be the biggest and best yet, with 12 stalls, selling hand-made Christmas gifts, for all ages and tastes.
Students had been busy for weeks making the items on sale, including cards, tags, decorations, bookmarks, cakes and candy. There was also a book sale, quizzes, a raffle, tombola, and Santa’s lucky dip.
Student Andrew Reidpath, said, “I had such a great day and was really surprised how busy it was. We raised a lot of money and I was really happy to help with that!”
Section Manager, Tracey Ford-McNicol, said, “There were many visitors and we were really pleased the cold, wintry weather didn’t stop people coming to see the wonderful items on offer and stock up on goodies for the festive period. The music and decorations were lovely, making it feel a really festive event.”
Over £600 was raised, with the money being used to fund future study trips.
