Gift fair raises hundreds for local charities

Gift fair raises hundreds for local charities

A craft and gift fair in Benson parish hall raised £660 for three charities. It was organised by Hazel and Bill Pattison, from Shillingford, and featured 19 charity and commercial stalls.

The couple sold knitted tortoises to raise money for Rainbow the Tortoise, a charity which helps the Chiltern Centre for disabled children in Henley, Wallingford Toy Library and RAW, formerly the Pathway Workshop, which produces hand-made garden and wildlife products made by people with disabilities. Mr Pattison said: “Although we don’t raise masses, we’re able to direct it to where we see the need. There are some individuals who have needs and can’t access funding.”
