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)

I really enjoyed the day and learnt a lot. It was such an empowering and motivational meeting for us. So a huge thanks to every delegate, everyone contributed so much. I hope to attend many more of these meetings in the future.

Thank you so much for welcoming me to the Charity Fairs Association which is a truly classy operation.

It was lovely to see you all again and reminds me that 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.

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.

A thank you to the CFA!

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)

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

Thank you from the RNLI Michaelmas Fair Organiser

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.

I just wanted to say thank you for a great day today. Having spoken to several of the girls there I think we all agreed that it was extremely worthwhile and a huge amount was gained – especially from the Fair Application Workshop this afternoon.

We thoroughly enjoyed the AGM in January and thought the Q&A session was a great way of addressing issues between stallholders and fair organisers. It must be a huge amount of work for you and the Committee to pull it all together. Our congratulations to you all on another successful day.
The standard of the speed presenters and new stalls around the room was high and varied. We have contacted quite a few of them in the hope they will attend our Gift Fair in October.
