We had a fantastic day at the Moyser Road Christmas Market on Saturday 12 December.
Furzedown Community Network worked really hard to make it a success and the streets were packed – we were sold out of Heyland & Whittle long before the end!
We also had some lovely handmade knitted items and bric-a-brac and have made over £1500 to help local charities: the South London Motor Neurone Disease Association and St George’s Hospital where we’ll be helping create a ‘chill out room’ for young people with cancer which will be opening early next year.
The winning raffleticket for the hamper was picked by Santa and the lucky winner was Jayne of Rectory Lane.
Thanks to everyone who supported us – Happy Christmas and looking forward to more in the new year!
We have been so lucky with the support we’ve received from Paddy and Ursula who used to live in Furzedown and still have many friends here. They founded Heyland & Whittle in 1998 making lovely handmade natural soaps and fragrances.
They have given us lots of their wonderful produce to sell at local fairs and events, which has helped us raise so much money for local causes. Recently we were all invited to St George’s Hospital to a special event to celebrate local fundraisers.
We are very close to getting the special ‘chill out room’ for teenagers with cancer – see the plans below – hopefully opening early next year!
This Saturday on 12 December FACE will be selling lovely Heyland & Whittle handmade goodies at the Furzedown Winter Market on Moyser Road between 4 – 7pm; look out for our stall by The Village Restaurant!
There are beautiful candles, exquisite reed diffusers, lotions and natural handmade soaps which all make wonderful presents. All the money earned will go to help local causes.
To have a preview visit www.heylandandwhittle.co.uk and make sure you come early as last year we sold out quickly. We will also be having a prize draw to win a hamper of goodies which will be drawn on the night.
See you there!
