More people than ever came to the College on 13th November to enjoy the Friends’ 2010 annual Autumn Fair.

No fair would be complete without stalls giving the chance to win bottles and secret prizes, and buy books and homemade cakes. But visitors to the 2010 Autumn Fair were also delighted to find a wide selection of CDs, DVDs, video cassettes (right), jewellry and individually designed greetings cards, along with the hidden treasures of the bric-a-brac stalls (below left).

A unique piece was the South African sculpture (below right) which was the lot of a “blind” auction and on its own raised £25.

Thanks to the generosity of the many donors and helpers, as well as the crowds of visitors, the Fair raised the magnificent total of over £1900 in just two hours!

The Fair is the principal fund-raising occasion for the Friends of the College. Among their recent gifts are the splendid leather armchairs which now furnish the theological library.
