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.

Upcoming Fairs

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. Annabel Peckham is the administrator.

We have active Facebook and Twitter pages and publish helpful tips and useful websites. Do ‘like’ our page Charity Fairs Association on Facebook

  • A thank you to the CFA!

    Thank you so much for welcoming me to the Charity Fairs Association which is a truly classy operation. You’ve been very supportive from the beginning; showing me what to do as a novice and your conference that I came to was great fun and a good training.
  • CFA Northern Meeting where Fair Organisers and Stallholders worked together

    Having never attended a CFA event before, it was the perfect way to gain invaluable feedback from stallholders and share ideas with other fair organisers in a relaxed atmosphere. I think for us the most interesting outcome was being able to see stalls “in the flesh” and how different they can be from their applications (Fair Organiser)
  • Our Meeting in the North where Fair Organisers meet Stallholders

    The meeting was most helpful and SO well organised. Hopefully we got some nice stalls. It is not easy being so far north. (Fair Organiser)
  • Thank you from the RNLI Michaelmas Fair Organiser

    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

What is so good about a charity fair?
