When we started the RNLI Michaelmas Fair back in 2006 joining the CFA gave us the confidence and know how to start a new charity fair from scratch. The CFA is an invaluable resource both for Fair Organisers and Stallholders. Our fair alone has so far raised close to £300,000 for the RNLI and nationwide the money raised by all the fairs must be huge!! It has been a great pleasure to have been part of it
Fair applications are going pretty ok. More yes’s than last year already and I would put that down to the CFA workshop last year when we worked on applications. That was very worthwhile www.punica.co.uk
I would never be where I am now without your help @FairsAssoc thank you for following #ThankYou
I have just taken out stock insurance with Insignia – great quote and half the price that I was given by other insurance companies
I wanted to say an enormous THANK YOU to you and the committee for organising such a brilliant AGM. It was my first and I was impressed. I know that all these interests from stall holders/ fair organisers and all the other stuff in between is never easy to get right. Sounds like it was rather a dreadful year last year, so onwards and upwards.
Just want to let you know how impressed I was with the AGM. Clear, concise presentations wjth all the info I needed. The ‘speed dating’ exercise at the end was superb. Please, please make it a regular exercise.
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the Conference this year – I can’t imagine how much work went into organising it but the whole day was fantastic and incredibly useful.
It was an interesting and informative day and I have already received emails form at least two of the fair organisers who I pitched too, so thank you for your part in introducing me to a wider audience.
