33rd Annual Charity Christmas Bazaar

In 2020, we raised £13,398 for our chosen charity. All of the money raised will go to the ‘Motor Neurone Disease Breathing Support Project’, which is being delivered by members of the Palliative Care Service based at Florence Nightingale Hospice, which is part of Buckinghamshire NHS Trust. The project has the full backing of the Chiltern Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

This is how we did it:

In July, we organized an outdoor market in the garden of one of our members.

We sold our Christmas hampers at the Amersham on the Hill outdoor market.

We baked cookies and cakes and sold them to friends and family.

Supported by donations from a wide range of friends and local businesses we held an online auction.

And finally, working with Brilliant Little Brands and a number of our regular vendors, 10% of sales were given to our charity.  We were also extremely lucky to receive a variety of donations from friends, family, sponsors and other organizations.
