A warm but breezy day brought out
the crowds to the Soroptimist Craft & Market Day. Over 90 stalls this year
provided a great selection of produce and products garden art and plants were
very popular. The North Canterbury Soroptimist baking stall
had customers 4 deep in the busy morning rush. Soroptimist
members contributed alll the produce to the stall. we also had a Stall with hand made Christmas decorations and ontother with pre loved handbags and scarves. The local buskers added to the festivities with a great selection of music.
the fair is our major fund raising event of the year, it is our intention to donate approximately $7000 to Aviva Family violence services, (Women's Refuge).
The day is also an opportunity to talk about soroptimist and we have had several enquiries for women wishing to join our group.
