We’re all going through very strange times at the moment and of course I hope that you’re well and coping with the many changes that are being asked of us.

No-one can say when life will be as before but there are always birthdays to celebrate, gifts to say ‘thank you’, gifts to say ‘I’m thinking of you’ or ‘I love you’ and of course, Christmas is just around the corner! Normally at this time of year, I’d be driving around the country meeting lots of lovely ladies at all the charity fairs I go to.  But Covid-19 has meant all these have had to be cancelled and charities have lost a big opportunity to raise much needed money. But all is not lost! Below are a few who have worked hard to bring you their own Virtual Fairs where 10% of everything you spend will go to their charities. Just select the Fair that you’d like to support and enter the relevant code in my ‘Coupon’ box and I’ll know who to send the 10% to.

The Westonbirt Shopping FairSaturday October 24th to Sunday 29th November – this is one of the largest charity fairs in the West Country. It is a not-for-profit annual event supporting both Home-Start and other local charities.  Enter WSF after your name when ordering.


Watoto Trust Virtual Fair  –  Saturday 7th to Monday 30th November.  Help raise money for not just the Watoto Trust (relieving poverty and educating vulnerable children in Kenya) but also The Rosemary Foundation (providing a hospice at home service in Petersfield and surrounding towns and villages) and St Catherine of Siena (supporting the preservation, repair and improvement of the ancient Downland church in the village of Cocking, W Sussex). Enter the code WAT20 in the Coupon box at checkout.
