Christmas Fayre 2022

Friday 9 December 2022    
     

It was sheer magic seeing the excited face of the young mum as she collected her £100 cash prize at our Christmas Fayre on Friday 9 December. Like many in our parish that are clearly struggling to keep their heads above water during this financial crisis, this money - our raffle First Prize - clearly meant the earth to her and her little children this Christmas.

After the misery of Covid lockdown, it was wonderful to have the festive Fayre back. Over 300 adults and children from all over the parish packed the aisles for our evening of fun and festivities. These included a visit from Santa and his elves, games, tombolas, tasty turkey rolls, mulled wine and mince pies and mountains of chocolate.

A five-piece brass band from Northampton School for Boys opened the proceedings before our own St Matthew's Choir sang a programme of carols.

The positive and joyful response to the Fayre has been overwhelming. Everyone who came left with smiles on their faces saying they'd really enjoyed the evening.

Putting on the Christmas Fayre involves a lot of people, time, effort, money and commitment. Thank you to everyone who gave so generously and worked so very hard. This was a hugely popular and heart-warming community event that brought many young families into our beautiful church. Some for the first time.

Well done everyone at St Matthew's.
