North Street Winter Fair

On a freezing cold weekend at the end of November 2015, South Bristol Toy Library founder, Annie, along with volunteers and committee members Kate, Ben and Sarah set up a stall to promote the idea of a toy library in south Bristol, to talk to passers-by and find out their interest in a local toy library, and to raise funds through a raffle of a fabulous Kiddi-moto balance bike.

Warming cups of coffee and tinsel adorning the stall did little to raise the festive spirit with driving rain and strong winds but we did manage to brave it to the bitter end when the the fair was called off early due to the awful weather.

Despite the difficult conditions, awareness of the toy library was raised, passers-by who stopped to chat entered the raffle and £30 profit was raised to help fund the set up costs of the toy library.
