Spring fair 2009
In October 2009, we held a Spring Fair to continue to raise funds for Steps with Hope. Throughout the year, friends visiting Thailand had very kindly sourced items for sale which was a great way of supporting the Thai economy and also raising money in Australia to be sent back out to Thailand to fund our school programme. Our team had also sourced items from other countries, friends donated handmade items including paintings so we had a great selection of goodies for sale.
Our homemade cards were very popular. With 150 invited guests, the sun shining, live music and wonderful cream teas, the fair was a success. In fact we sold out of most items within the first 2 hours of the fair making a profit of approx $9,000.
The Spring Fair will now become an annual event
