Second-Helpings is a strong believer in supporting small businesses in the local area. Each year we aim to host two stall holders events (outside event in June/July and inside in November) where invited exhibitors can display their wares to the public. In the past we have supported small businesses such as Mill House Home; Bags By Terrie; Silverre Bespoke Jewellery; What Katy Does Best & Body & Soul Beauty by Debz
Having worked for a number of charities for over 25 years, I know how difficult it is to fundraise, especially with so many good causes out there. In September 2020, during the Covid 19 pandemic, we held an all-day coffee & cake event to raise funds for MacMillan Cancer Support – it was truly inspiring to hear the stories of so many people who’s lives have been affected by Cancer and learn about the incredible work this charity is doing. Including Gift Aid, we raised just under £500.00 and ate delicious cake all day 😊
