Headway Shropshire Winter Fair

Monday, November 27, 2017



Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Winter Fair at Headway Shropshire.  We decided to move the annual event into November as you are all so busy in December and what a success it was.  I don't think we could of accommodated any more people in our rehabilitation centre. 

The Shrewsbury Concert band provided some beautiful music whilst everyone browsed around the stalls and enjoyed a cup of tea with some home made cake.



Every year we are overwhelmed by the generosity of you all donating raffle prizes and making hand made items for us to sell.


It was our most successful fair to date and we raised £1149.65 after expenses.

The name of the REINDEER was CARROT and the name of the ROBIN was ISSIE, both name were selected by clients in the rehabilitation centre.

We are extremely grateful to all the staff, volunteers and supporters who volunteered their time to help set up, look after the stalls and tidy up after the event.
