On the 9th December, Fife had a flurry of activity in a little building called Glenelvan House. Christmas tunes echoed out, the smells of hot coffee, and warming food filled the air, while the laughter and giggles of children and adults rang out. Christmas had arrived in Fife!

The Swiis training room took on the ambience and decor of a German Christmas Market and transformed into a veritable craft paradise. With items for sale from fifty pence, there truly was something for everyone to buy as gifts.

Glitter tattoos were applied and admired, and activities were enjoyed by everyone. Sparry’s reindeers arrived again and were snapped up fast, whilst Rachel and Michelle sold handmade crafts. A young person created mini canvas’s and James, Kenney and their foster child allowed people to guess the teddy’s birthday. All were kept going by Eric Copson and his drinks and snacks.

Our carers are a wonderful group and were on hand to help, support and sell. Without them the day would not have been such a huge success. Thanks to everyone who came, supported, sold, and spent.

This was our second fair, and it was certainly bigger and better than last year. Those who attended (we were packed) shared the Christmas enjoyment and certainly spent their money.

Donations from the day will be going to two charities; Edinburgh Homeless (chosen by a young person) and Fife Link Chernobyl Children’s Life Line.
