Christmas fayre proceeds donated to good causes

Proceeds from the Gayle Mill Trust Christmas fayre held in November have been distributed to good causes.

The fayre was held in their Woodcraft Studio at Raygill Farm, near Hawes.

Claire Lambert, from the trust, said: “Once again our Christmas fayre was extremely well supported by the public and our volunteers worked hard towards this day making a good selection of handcrafted bespoke wood products for kitchen, home and garden use, wooden Christmas trees, wooden reindeer, and the popular tool jumble did well too.

“All the proceeds after deducting costs for staging the event are distributed to local good causes and the organisers are very pleased to announce that £4,000 has been distributed.”

The cheques were presented by William Lambert, chair of the trust.

Those receiving donations were local builder Mark Alderson, Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team, the Great North Air Ambulance, Hawes in Bloom, Hawes Christmas lights fund and Bainbridge Christmas lights fund.
