Providing financial support for those experiencing tragedy or hardship within the Henley Community

Christmas Fayre 2011

The Face of Henley held its annual Christmas Fayre on Thursday 17th November 2011 at Henley Rugby Club. The venue was transformed by a wonderful range of 34 different stalls offering ladies clothes, children’s clothes, jewellery, handbags, home accessories and gifts, interesting and innovative Christmas stocking fillers, delicious handmade fudge and chocolates - lots of Christmas ideas for all the family! The Christmas Fayre raised £3,350 and the money is to be donated to The Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children and The Lions Club of Henley-on-Thames to help with the Christmas parcels for the Elderly. The main organiser, Sarah Flindall, would like to thank Coopers Solicitors and Peers & Hilton for assisting with financial sponsorship, Antony & Jay Worrall Thompson for making the delicious soups which were sold on the day and her many helpers in the photograph who helped on the day and donated cakes to be sold with tea and coffee.
