Growing funds for Mayfair

With many thanks for all those who grew, sold and bought plants for and from our pop-up plant stalls this month. It was a fantastic team effort, raising £927.20 in total.

Normally we run a plant stall as part of our annual May Fayre but this year, with Covid calling a halt to fayres, fetes and other fun gatherings, we decided to give the stall a life of its own. Our pop-up appeared outside the Health and Wellbeing Centre well stocked with plants reared by a group of green-fingered volunteers and manned by a hardy bunch who braved the rain and drizzle. Our special thanks go to David and Trish Howard, Jane Blake and Chrys Bonds.

The money raised will be used by Mayfair to run support services for people in the Strettons and surrounds.

If you have an idea for a fundraising activity or would like to volunteer at an event, come along to our online Fundraising team meeting on Thursday 20 May at 7pm. Email fundraising@mayfaircentre.org.uk for the link to attend.
