Teddington Village Fair & Pram Race

25th June 

We don't sit still for long, no sooner was the "Hampton Wick Big Picnic" over than we started to prepare for "The Teddington Fair". This is the first year we've had our stall here. By the time we had mastered our rickety canopy a group of eager young things had appeared to try their luck at the Hoopla. Whilst they threw hoops we handed out leaflets and chatted to the older generations. We recruited one or two new volunteers as well as a few more clients ....... and lots of children won lots of prizes.

 It is unseemly to crow, I know, but -

WE WON THE PRAM RACE ...... AGAIN!

2017-06-25-Pram Race03

Our fantastic team, Ali Fox (old lady), Jules Palmer, Grace Palmiere and Ann Brown were fleet of foot and robust of muscle. It is actually quite a challenging race, the pushers must have stamina & strength whilst anticipating every bump in the road, the pushee should have nerves of steel, a grip of iron - and a sense of humour. 

Not only did we have the satisfaction of winning, we also received a prize of £50 generously donated by Nitesh at KC pharmacy. This money means a lot to us, we don't go to these events to make a profit, it is really an awareness excercise, but we are self-funded so any cash that comes our way is hugely appreciated. Who knows, in a year or two we might be able to up-grade our canopy.
