On December 4 the AWBS ladies came together for a morning of shopping, festive treats and mini workshops to benefit our four selected charities for 2017/2018: Support 19, Your Sanctuary, The Club House Project and Bracknell Parkinsons.
AWBS members began arriving just after 9am, and throughout the morning were generous in purchasing raffle tickets to support our charities, while also shopping with a huge selection of vendors and supporting local businesses. We heartily thank the following businesses for supporting this event, as vendors truly made the morning a complete success: Rosy Friday, Miss Ginny Millinery, Agora, Le Cose Belle, CC Gin, Charming Designs, Neal's Yard, Wrap Up in Style, Jilli Isaac, Black Labrador World, Brocante Treasures, Marie S, Elegance, Choice of Scandinavia, The Branding House, Sarah Morris Photography, Usborne Books and English Folly.
All told, just over £1,600.00 was raised to benefit our charities to the complete delight of all involved, especially as the festive season has truly begun, and generosity is what this time of year is all about.
Alongside our supportive vendor stalls were our activity leaders with a huge array of opportunities for learning, recreation and fun as we move into 2018.
Club members were able to plan ahead for a busy start to 2018, and there is much to look forward to!
