The Charity is as quoted on their website:
(HANDS) Help a neighbour in distress Schemeis a neighbourhood care group covering Twickenham & St. Margarets.HANDS aims to improve the quality of life by giving friendly, practical help to those in need. Local volunteers give help & support in many ways to people of any age group, especially older, frail, disabled, sick & lonely people.
The Fair is as quoted on their website:
The Charities Fair was first held in 1981 to enable charities and voluntary organisations to participate in Twickenham’s 800 year Anniversary Celebrations and to promote volunteering by providing an affordable venue and opportunity for fundraising and publicity.
Held annually, it is a fun day out for local people and their families.
Additionally six local craft stalls are invited to take part – selling their own hand-made creations.
The Mayor of Richmond upon Thames is invited to do a walkabout tour of the stalls to meet and greet the organisers and helpers from 11am onwards.
Over seventy organisations participate, having stalls around the Green selling a variety of goods including plants, toys, home produce, jams, cakes, gifts, books, bric-a-brac, refreshments, barbecue etc.
It is a family orientated day so many will include a simple competition or amusement for children such as a treasure hunt, face painting, making badges etc.
Accordingly stall fees just cover expenses and are kept to a minimum.
Organising the fair is not a profit-making endeavour for HANDS.
It will take place come rain or shine, hopefully shine! What a better way to support voluntary organizations and charities and enjoy one of our lovely Bank Holidays! Entry is FREE Address: Twickenham,
