Newsletter – January 2020
Welcome to BRoW4’s first newsletter of 2020! Winter is generally a quieter period for us event wise, which is why we haven’t had a newsletter since September. That said, we have been to a few Christmas events (Christmas seems like such a long time ago now!). We’ve also been working hard on our FunFest for the Air Ambulances 2020 event, so read on to find out more.

SIMPLY CHRISTMAS @ THE HAYCOCK HOTEL
On Sunday 17th November BRoW4 was at the Simply Christmas event at the Haycock Hotel, where there was a wonderful array of handmade Christmas gifts on display, and everyone was feeling very festive. These lovely robins caught our photographer’s eye, and the fox peeping out is just beautiful!
Friday 22 November & Saturday 23 November 2019
CHRISTMAS CRAFT MARKET
The annual Christmas Craft Market took place on Friday 22nd November and Saturday 23rd November. Anna was there to cook the bacon butties for everyone and the children had great fun wandering around finding all the snowmen that were hidden on the stalls around the church.
Saturday 14 & Sunday 15 December 2019
CHRISTMAS @ THE GEORGE
On Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th December BRoW4 held the event Christmas @ The George. There were stalls, magic mirrors, Mrs Christmas and Father Christmas and crafts for the children. The event was to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Research, and we are delighted to be able to tell you that we donated £500 for this very worthy cause! The very talented Mylene Wolfe made another of her delicious cakes for us to raffle, and it made us all crave turkey every time we looked at it! It had us all fooled though, as it was actually a carrot cake. The children got to visit Father Christmas, and each child was given a lovely gift.

DONATIONS TO HOLLY WARD
As BRoW4 had some gifts left over from Christmas @ The George, Anna and Mrs Christmas took them to Hinchingbrooke Hospital, where they donated them to children on Holly Ward, who sadly wouldn’t be able to go home for Christmas. We hope that we managed to put a smile on their faces!
