A fantastic start to the festive season from Dummer Fair

It has been another fantastic year for The Dummer Fair, raising an outstanding £32,000 so far in aid of Treloar’s...

The annual fundraising event is a firm favourite for shoppers across Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire.  Held over two days, around 1,000 shoppers attended across the two days and bought from a wide selection of artisan and independent businesses, ranging from crafts to food, clothing and gifts.

All the profits from the Fair are donated to the Treloar Trust which runs a School and College for severely disabled children and young people in Holybourne, Hampshire.  

Jon Colville, Director of Fundraising at Treloar’s added: “An event like this takes many months of planning so we have to give huge thanks to the committee, who not only planned and managed the event but worked so hard on the day. Thanks also to our sponsor Savills and their team who greeted everyone at the entrance, then the legion of hard working, loyal volunteers, the Friends of Treloar’s, our SAP volunteers and everyone at the Dummer Cricket Centre who made the event possible. I don’t want to miss the Treloar team either who parked their normal work routine to help on the day. All the profits are invested in our young people so a wonderful and slightly different way of raising money for Treloar’s. We are very grateful to everyone who supported the event.”
