We dusted off our jingle bells and raided our wardrobes for red things, and got into the mood at The Sara Lee Trust Christmas Fair, held in the beautiful church of St John the Evangelist, St Leonards. This wonderful charity raises funds to help families and people affected by cancer. There was a warm and friendly atmosphere and lots of people, and we were joined for a while by Tony, a uke player visiting from The Isle of Wight. Nice to meet you Tony!
We are delighted to be providing lots of seasonal songs in support of The Sarah Lee Christmas Fair this coming Saturday. There will be great festive shopping with lots of stalls, including gifts, delicious refreshments and children’s crafts, also a grand Christmas Raffle and a visit from Father Christmas!
The event will be held at St. John’s Church, Pevensey Road, St Leonards-on-Sea,TN38 0RD, Look forward to seeing you there!
On Tuesday evening we were joined by Meg who is visiting the area from Northumberland. She plays with The Angel Delights a ukulele group based in Wooler, they have recently played at Alnwick International music festival and like most ukulele groups play to raise funds for charity. We have had a lot of visitors this year from other ukulele groups and it has been great to share experiences and songs with them.
