JALON VALLEY HELP held its annual Christmas Fayre last Sunday as stallholders arrived bright and early to set up their colourful displays offering a variety of food and drink, Christmas crafts and gifts, bags, bric-a-brac, books and cards.

The weather was very kind which enabled more stalls to be set up outside.  Stallholders and visitors commented on the happy atmosphere and how impressed they were with the helpful manner in which the volunteers of the charity go out of their way to make it such an enjoyable occasion.

Entertainment was provided by the the U3A Vall del Pop Singers who sang Christmas songs and carols, there was a fashion show with the models donning outfits picked from the charity´s two shops in Alcalali and Jalon and The Nomad performed his much-loved variety of songs and kept the party going.

The accounts have still got to be finalised as there is still an odd receipt to come in, but the final figure raised is expected to be in the region of €5,400.

Elaine Horton, President, gave her personal thanks to everyone for their continued support in the charity´s 25th Anniversary Year.

The funds raised will be used to help the sick and needy in the local area.
