Congratulations to all the volunteers who made the first Ham Parade Market such a success.
The rain held off and the parade was swamped with local residents from Ham, Petersham & North Kingston who ensured that the majority of stalls ran out of produce around lunch time. Ham & Petersham SOS were privileged to be the first chosen local charity to benefit from the market (if you missed it there was a wonderful hamper raffled off with all proceeds being donated to SOS.) £337 funds was raised for Ham & Petersham SOS through raffle ticket sales and donations all of which will benefit the local community and help us to continue to provide local support and activities.
The stall also enabled SOS to recruit a number of new volunteers and we hope that they will thrive in the SOS family and that the wonders of “word of mouth” help us to expand our client base. All in all, it was a wonderful (if a little cold and windy) Saturday on the parade.
More information on the market is available here: http://www.hamparademarket.org/about-us/ and the date of the next one is Saturday 4th November from 10am.
Ham & Petersham SOS will be supporting the next market, and if you need a lift there, please contact the office on 020 8948 1090
