The last prize in the draw is always a specific doll, this year Janet won the last prize doll with her beautiful eyes. The Raffle raised a staggering £3,000 which was match funded by a corporate sponsor to increase it tenfold for Save the Children International.
After the raffle we set up my daughter's sales table items on the same table I had used for the craft workshop during the morning, sharing the space with Jenny who had made lots of lovely outfits. My daughter had learned to crochet and in addition to making Animal's headgear, she had crocheted several flowers and flower headbands - hair accessories for Sasha. The individual flowers had a hair clip stitched to them and were sold in pairs or as singles. She only had 3 headbands (5 flowers in a row) and sold one of them, as well as taking an order for another in a particular wool (she had a basket of wool for people to choose from). She was pleased to sell nearly half of what she had made. Laura and Louisa modelled a floral headband and a flower on a hairclip.
