The Community Spirit Christmas Craft & Trade Fair had a lovely Christmasy atmosphere, with an amazing 27 local businesses taking a stall and the wonderful winter wonderland with Santa in his Grotto.

We welcomed over 350 visitors through the door to enjoy the day us.

The event has raised just over £1000, which will be added to further fund raising events to help us deliver 100 Christmas food hampers and hot Christmas Day lunches.

We would like to thank all the residents of Newton Aycliffe and the Big Club in helping us create the lovely community event and raising funds towards this mammoth task.
