Christ­mas comes early for Brod­ick

The Arran Banner - - News -

The an­nual Save the Chil­dren Christ­mas fair at­tracted a large crowd to the Brod­ick Hall on Satur­day morn­ing which raised more than £1,500 for the char­ity.

The well-at­tended event saw the in­cred­i­bly pop­u­lar home­bak­ing stall and the tombolla sell­ing out within hours of open­ing, de­spite a huge ar­ray of prizes and a bak­ing ta­ble ex­tend­ing al­most half the length of the main hall.

Do­ing an equally brisk trade the hand-knit­ted items and crafts, which in­cluded knit­ted snow­men and hand-made Christ­mas cards, were pop­u­lar. In ad­di­tion to the jew­ellery and cloth­ing stalls, the ever pop­u­lar raf­fle en­sured that there was a queue of peo­ple wait­ing to have a chance of win­ning one of the lux­ury ham­pers on of­fer.

At the same time a large group of Save the Chil­dren vol­un­teers served the vis­i­tors tea and cof­fee with the en­tire seat­ing area filled with those en­joy­ing scones with cream and jam, home­bak­ing and soup.
