Thank you everybody who took part in the 2018 Corstorphine Fair. Remember these funds were from donations at the gate, children rides and sponsorship, as well as the 20% donated from participating groups. After we had paid all our bills (about £18,000) we distribute the excess. The fact that the participating groups donated about £5,000 means that on the day the various stall holders raised about £20,000 for themselves. Fantastic effort, it is what gives the Fair Committee Members a warm fuzzy feeling inside and why we do it!
