A very successful St Nicholas Autumn Fair was held on Saturday 17th November with a net profit of £2,100. Local shops and businesses were particularly generous with their donations and we are very grateful to them for their support. The raffle at £556 and the Silent Auction at £513 raised the most money and as always are key to the success of the Fair.

Thank you to everyone who bought raffle tickets and made bids. We could not have achieved this result without you. We usually give away 50% of the net profit to charity and this year we have sent a cheque for £1,050 to Bromley Y, which is based in Bromley. Bromley Y provides a variety of support services for young people and is a community based emotional/mental wellbeing service for children, young people and families in Bromley. These are challenging financial times for many of us and the remaining profit will be a very useful addition to the St Nicholas funds. Thank you again to everyone who helped and supported the Autumn Fair and enabled us to raise such a magnificent sum of money.
