Brittany decorates biscuits.
On Sunday September 11th the Gold Fish team and I
alongside Ms. Jenkins, Mr. Crouch and honorary helpers, braved the monsoon
weather to set up our Regentís Stall at the Jesterís Fair. From the moment

Unfortunately, due to the weather, we made the decision
to close our stall at approximately 11:45 a.m. Sunday morning and devised a
plan of action to raise money for this worthy charity. It was decided that
we would personally decorate all three hundred sugar cookies, package 100
bags of candy and sell the foam puppets to parents and children as a means
of generating funds.
With the help of the Regentís community, the Gold Fish
team and I were able to sell all of our supplies and in the end generated

was our pleasure to have been given the opportunity to work this event!
