NTM’S Christmas Fayre raised a whopping €2148.25 this year; as usual we couldn’t do this without all the support we receive.
So here goes with all the thankyous; Santa, Mrs Santa and their elf; Ronn for taking the photos and Ned for printing them; to all the stall holders who participate and make it so interesting; the volunteers who work so hard to make it all come together, moving items from one place to another and back again; the Girl Guides who were diligent in all they did; Top Catz dancers for a wonderful performance; Max for his brilliant Christmas music and support over the years; Ayuntamiento de Tías for use of Macher Sociadad and for all those on the poster above who donated generous prizes for tombola and raffle for both the Fayre and Future events. Many, many thanks; we really couldn’t do it without you.
Not least of course to all who came, those we haven’t named who support our work, and hopefully you all had fun!
