Spirit of Christmas Fayre raises money to help children of Leeds

A team of BA (Hons) Events Management students at Leeds Metropolitan University organised the amazing Spirit of Christmas Fayre to raise funds for the Leeds Children’s Charity last weekend.  The Cinnamon Team, consisting of Nicola Rose, Antje Strietholt, James Ingleby, Molly Ridley, Alex Robson, and Josh Atherton, are all BA (Hons) Events Management students.  The event was organised as part of the students’ Professional Events Solutions module task in order to raise the profile of the charity and to generate revenue.

P1040207The fayre was opened by the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Cllr Ann Castle, who is the President of the Leeds Children’s Charity during her term of office.

There were lots of stalls offering a variety of Christmas goods for all ages, a tombola, and a raffle with prizes donated by many generous sponsors including Blue Logic Computer Services Limited, Clark Business Recovery, DWF LLP, Aviva, and more.

The event raised over £400, and this money will be used to provide a short break/respite by the sea for two disadvantaged children.

The trustees of the Leeds Children’s Charity were delighted to work with the students to ensure that the event was a success.  Nicola McCullough, tutor at the university, said that she had been really impressed by the enthusiasm and commitment shown by the students, and their obvious enjoyment at working for the charity and its very worthwhile purpose.
