Proceeds from Gayle Mill Trust’s Christmas fayre have been handed to local good causes.
The event was held at Gayle Institute as Gayle Mill has been closed for repair work by its owners.
Claire Lambert, the trust’s manager, said: “The attendance at the fayre was encouraging and many of the wooden Christmas trees were sold, along with the unique reindeer, wood products and a variety of seasonal handmade gifts.
“By the end of the day, a good amount of mince pies and mulled wine had been consumed and everyone who attended had, we hoped enjoyed their visit.
“Gayle Mill Trust continues to be indebted to their loyal volunteers who work behind the scenes making wood products and selling them on the day.
“Whilst Gayle Mill Trust is no longer a tenant in Gayle Mill, they have decided to give the proceeds, after their costs, from the Christmas Fayre to local causes and they presented some cheques in late January.”

“GMT is delighted to support these local organisations who do tremendous good for the local community,” added Claire.
