Families flocked to The Children’s Trust’s Christmas Fair at Tadworth Court, at the weekend (28th November) and overall helped to raise £14,000. Over 1,000 visitors turned out to enjoy the annual event.
The skating rink, donkey rides, fairground rides and Santa’s Grotto proved to be a great hit with youngsters, whilst older members of the family enjoyed a leisurely browse of a wide range of stalls in the Christmas market. Entertainment was provided by Surrey Hills Radio, Surrey Police Band and the Wallington Girls High School Choir.

Hannah Vince, Community Fundraising Co-ordinator at The Children’s Trust said: “There is an endless list of people to thank for supporting the Christmas Fair but, I would especially like to thank the sponsor Toyota GB, Surrey Hills Radio, Surrey Police Band, the Wallington Girls High School Choir, all the prize donors, skating-rink organisers, advertisers, stall holders, the 14th Reigate Scout Group and our loyal army of volunteer helpers.”
