Cotswold Fayre’s Summer Ball – July 2022

Cotswold Fayre, Paul’s business, has been supporting the Bala Children’s Centre since 2011 when he first went to Kenya with his daughter, Megan. After a 4-year gap, due to Covid Cotswold Fayre hosted its 5th Summer Ball for customers and suppliers within the speciality food sector in July 2022. 

We were pleased to yet again raise a total of nearly £25,000 – 80% of which was donated to the Bala Children’s Centre, which went to build new classrooms and contribute to a new admin building which was destroyed in a storm earlier that year  The other 20% of the money raised went to a local charity called the Cowshed in the Reading area. 

There was fabulous entertainment with a live band and magician and it was good to remind all 225 attendees that we are very privileged to live the lives we do with most people in the world being considerably worse off.
