Sarah Lee Trust Christmas Fair

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!

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.  Some of us, whilst on our holidays, have visited other ukulele groups too and as usual a great evening is had by all!
