Christmas Market 2017

Posted by on Dec 20, 2017 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Christmas Market 2017

At the beginning of December, we hosted our first ever Christmas Market. This proved to be a huge success, raising the magnificent sum of £3,166.00. We were honoured that James Allan, Convener for Moray Council took time out to come along and not only welcomed everyone and opened our event, but also stayed all evening and drew the raffle at the end of the proceedings.

During the evening, Kathy McGrath Gunn was live on Wave Radio. We feel overwhelmed at the generosity of many people who donated bottles to Mary Fraser for her amazing bottle stall, raffle prizes, Strathisla Bakery, Ron Farquharson and so many more. We were fortunate to have Greenwards School Choir, Artiquins, Gordonstoun School, VIP Childcare and Maryanne who entertained us throughout the event. Thank you to East End School for kindly allowing us the use of their car park and our Board of Governors for their car parking duties.

The atmosphere was wonderful, everyone getting into the Christmas spirit. So many talented people selling their goods on the stalls. We were able to accommodate over 20 stalls, thanks to the generosity of Grants Marquee hire for donating the large marquee for the evening. Santa and his elves were a huge hit with all the children. The outside Christmas lights brightened up the entranced to our beautiful historic building. Thank you Access Platforms Aberdeen Limited for their assistance and to Speyfruit for the trees. Indoors was like a Christmas wonderland, well done to Joan Cowe and her assistants Simon and Alistair for this stunning display. Last but not least a massive thank you to all staff and volunteers who gave up their time to help and all who turned up on the night to support us and make this event such a wonderful success.
