In 2019 Rachael organised a Silent Auction. It ended at Fippenny Fair raising £958 for the Village Hall. An unsold lot was sold on Ebay raising the final total to over £1000!
None of this would have been possible without the many donors, bidders, winners or people rushing around the Fippenny Fair drumming up interest. Thank you to you all.
In 2020 Rachael hoped to repeat success. Unfortunately 2020 turned out to be a very different year for us all.
