The annual Christmas Fayre has provided a seasonal 4,500TL boost to the funds of Girne’s St Andrew’s Church.
Last Saturday’s event saw more than 100 people flock to the church hall, where the youngest visitors had their faces painted and were able to visit Santa in his grotto and receive an early Christmas gift.
Stalls including a range of Christmas gifts, cards and treats such as cakes, mince pies and wine, were set up in the garden, while indoors were bric-à-brac and book stalls, a tombola and a raffle.
Linda Smith, who organised the event with Sue Hoult and Sandy Oram, said: “With help from church members and the Ladies’ Thursday Group, we managed to pull off a lovely event.
“It was good to have the sun shining on us despite the weather forecast, and there was a fantastic atmosphere throughout, with children playing and enjoying themselves and adults having a great time.”
