The fair – which was Daphne Minihane’s last as the organisation’s chairman after 28 years in the role – featured stalls selling clothing, toys, plants and cakes, as well as entertainment throughout the day, and children took part in apple-bobbing and pumpkin-carving.
Mrs Minihane, who will be standing down as chairman next month at the age of 85, said: ‘The stalls were stocked with new and almost-new toys, Christmas goods, books and clothing. It was a great success and we are thrilled with how it went.’
All proceeds raised will go to the charity, which supports the elderly in the community through social and educational events. It also provides cooked lunches, as well as a frozen-meals service.
