A record number of nostalgia-seeking families flocked to Cressing Temple Barns on Sunday 30th June for the HRCC Vintage Fair – raising over £15,000 for Helen Rollason Cancer Charity! The annual event is one of the charity’s flagship fundraisers and attracts visitors from around the region looking to enjoy a day of live entertainment, classic cars, music, dancing, stalls and much more.
It was smiles all round as crowds reveled in the glorious sunshine while watching live music from The Harmonettes and The Kingsmen, as well as Jive dancing from LJ’s Dancing. Meanwhile children were kept entertained with a variety of crafts, games, ice creams and even pie throwing, courtesy of the UK Pie Party.
There was plenty of opportunity for shopping with independent traders selling a selection of vintage clothing, crafts, jewellery, collectables, upcycled items, accessories and food. Hair and beauty experts, HairRaid Shelter, also proved popular, offering visitors a chance for a vintage make-over.
One of the major draws of the event was the vast selection of refreshment options on offer. Foodies were able to enjoy gastronomic treats and tasty drinks from the likes of Moley The Little Drinks Van, The Hog Shed, Tipsey Grey Ltd, The Giggly Pig Company, Twisted Cider, Cheese & Pie Man and Lavender Blue Vintage Teas.
Vicki Butcher, organiser for Helen Rollason Cancer Charity 2019 Vintage Fair said: “It was fantastic to see so many people coming along to the 10th anniversary of our Vintage Fair to enjoy themselves while supporting our charity. The fair has been a great success and looks set to have raised over £15,000 which will go towards supporting those affected by cancer in Essex, London and Hertfordshire. We would like to thank all of our visitors, stall holders and volunteer helpers for making it such a great event.”
