Charity fairs are an enjoyable and easy way to shop for original presents for all occasions, under one roof, whilst also enabling a great deal of money to be raised for charity. The original concept was to assist in the development of a mutually beneficial relationship between fundraising for charities and small, independently run, retailing businesses.
The proof of the Association’s success lies in its members. Our stallholders offer a range of high-quality, hand-picked, original goods at affordable prices - many of which are not available on the High Street. Our fair organisers provide professional, well-advertised events which attract discerning shoppers through their doors to the benefit of their supported charities.
Our management committee is on hand to give expert advice on all areas and we have a printed practical ‘Guide for Stallholders and Fair Organisers’ that we hope will help new members with the smooth running of their fairs. We are also able to provide very favourable insurance rates to our members as an integral part of their membership fee and will, in the future, be offering other membership benefits to support these small businesses.
The Association is a non profit-making organisation operating on a self-financing basis and is a self-regulatory body. Merry Wadlow is the administrator.
