In this new world, our focus is changing and the digital world is pivoting to the front of our activities. We have however not forgotten the many charities we supported.  No events meant no donations.. Thus has been born the Charity Fairs Association fundraising emporium, featuring all those stalls you know and love (including us!).  

Visit Charity Fairs Association and follow the instructions and should you place an order, we will donate 10% to the CFA Charity Fund - to be distributed between all CFA charities.
