What a brilliant day we had on Sunday, there was a lovely atmosphere at the show and everyone there seemed to enjoy their day. Heather had the Club Shop there with all her new Curly Merchandise for Christmas, including the 2024 CCRC Calendar, she took over £1000 in sales! Suzy, Jill and Nina organised the traditional Raffle, and this year we also had three Christmas Hampers, and raised over £250 in raffle ticket sales. Congratulations to Charlie Cummings who won the largest of the Christmas Hampers. Marie and Anne were also there with their lovely cards, for all occasions including of course Christmas.
