Handcross Ladies Association’s Village Fayre: on Saturday in aid of Sumner Malik was a great success! Not only was it well supported in terms of the number of ‘stalls’ but the number of people - young, old, singletons, couples and families - who went along to peruse and purchase, it was lovely to see! I must admit there were people there who I knew were into arts and crafts but there were also a lot that I didn’t know selling some very interesting and hard to resist items! It will be very interesting to see just how much was raised to help Sumner and his family pay for the treatment required to help him fight the tumour he is trying to overcome and as soon as I know, I will pass it on.
