Festive fair boosts funds

 Look who came to say hello to Happy House helpers at the Best Little Network Christmas market on Saturday?
Santa popped in to to tell us that he has his delivery round all mapped out and our 88 Happy House kids are on his list!
The Happy House is one of two charities receiving a donation from the proceeds of the fair at Wendy Hollands Fitness Studios in Thornton, plus we had a stall with hand made crafts, all donated by our friends.
Business was brisk for helpers Jackie Fineman, Andrea Manders, Pauline Royle and Elizabeth Gomm.
The family event was a first for the Network which is still in its first year, and showcased the businesses of some of its members.
We are extremely grateful to the network ladies for their very generous support of our Happy House family. It means so much to know that they have taken our children into their hearts.
Thank you ladies.
Thank you also to all the very talented crafty and arty people who made such lovely items for our stall at the fair, including Andrea Manders, Barbara Hall, Chris Camp, Carmel Farley, Nigel and Gill Hook, David Flynn.
It was a really festive event and it was great to see so many old friends, including several members of our Happy house sponsor family, and to make new friends. 
Our Happy House stall raised £249.45 (including advance sales by Andrea).
