Milly’s Smiles Summer Fayre

Our Summer Fayre was awesome!
All the last few months preparation, worry and sleepless nights have paid off!
The day was wonderful, the weather held for us and we were supported from people near and far.
It was a privilege to meet so many families who have had a Milly Bag, we especially loved meeting Link who joined us in his Super Hero T-shirt and was a dab hand at blowing bubbles.
The event was opened by Dexter and Joey, who are from Ward 84 and they (along with their parents) have been instrumental in helping us secure our unit.
Dex and Joey were joined by the Mayor of Hydburn and together they formally opened our new unit beautifully.
We had some wonderful stalls run by lovely people, the Police and Fire Brigade joined us, and they were fantastic at interacting with all the families and children, and really helped make the day a huge success.
There were lots of games and activities to get involved with, many coconuts were won on the coconut shy, balloons were popped to win prizes, and people had had the chance to guess the name of rainbow bear, number of sweets in a jar and the number of balloons in Milly’s van!
The day was brilliantly held together by the Police Cadets who worked so hard serving drinks and looking after all the stall holders, we thank every one of you so very much.
Finally the cake competition, we had some beautiful cakes and were happy to give the judging to Gemma from Loulou’s, prizes were given to the first three winners. Thank you Gemma.
The day has raised £1971, however we had a donation from a young boy of £29 as he wanted to bring the total up to £2000! This is way beyond what we ever expected.
Thank you so very much each and every person who has been involved in making today so wonderful.
