The annual Horsell Scouts and Guides Fayre took place on The Wheatsheaf Recreational ground in Woking on Bank Holiday Monday and we were excited to be in attendance. We had some great conversations and shared lots of information about the work we are doing to defeat homelessness together with your help. 

Our Tombola, guess the sweets and say hello to the Dodo were great ways to interact with people of all ages and we're thrilled that so many of you got to speak with us and learn more about how your donations and support really do make a huge positive difference to peoples lives. 

We're so grateful to you all for taking our leaflets and giving us more ideas on how we can be more visible in the forefront of peoples minds as a charity doing great work in Woking, Waverley and the surrounding areas.

"I loved the event, we managed to speak with some amazing people in the local community and thoroughly enjoyed seeing people take part with their furry friends in the dog races and other activities".  Stephen Ireland (Community Fundraiser)

Doll the dodo puppet attracted many people to the stall, did you come and say hello?

Visitors included Cllr Liam Lyons, Mayor of Woking and our chair of trustees Beryl even posed for a photo with Doll the dodo.  

"Such fun to join the scouts and guides at the Fayre on Monday, with Dodo. Thank you to the event staff and scouts for making it possible and everyone who came along, we had some fantastic conversations and enjoyed the day thoroughly". - Beryl Keeley (Chair of Trustees)

We are proud to confirm that a total of £275 was raised at this event.
