Cookham Christmas Fayre 2016

(29 November 2016)

Hundreds of visitors turned up to the Cookham Christmas Fayre at Moor Hall and left with armfuls of unique gifts and decorations from more than 30 stalls.

Boys and girls from Cookham Rise and Holy Trinity schools and the Razzmatazz Theatre School in Marlow entertained the crowds with Christmas songs and carols, as did the ladies of the Cookham Handbell  Ringers.

A raffle run by staff and volunteers from Elizabeth House proved very successful with a first prize of a Copas turkey, and visitors also crowded round two tombolas. Members of the popular day centre were on hand selling Christmas cards and knitted goods that they had made themselves.  All together they raised over £3000 – providing a valuable contribution towards the annual running costs of the centre.


“Everyone had a really good time on the day.  This is the main fundraising event for Elizabeth House, Cookham’s club for the over 60’s”, explained Fayre organiser and Elizabeth House trustee Stephanie Diggon.  “We are grateful to The Chartered Institute of Marketing for letting us use Moor Hall for free.  We do not charge local charities and organisations, and retailers’ fees go to Elizabeth House.”
