Peace III funding gave Fahan Presbyterian Church the ability to organise a Christmas Craft & Gift Fayre. The congregation and Church Hall Committee were delighted with the support of neighbours, friends and many from farther away. The funding to upgrade the kitchen equipment allowed members supply hot food and tea to the twenty five stall holders. Several hundred members of the public overcame slippery snow covered roads and paths to support the Fayre.

Snow on the day meant the Craft Fayre was in doubt.

People travelled from seventy miles to be at the Fahan Christmas Cake and Craft Fayre. Although bitterly cold and slippery outdoors, indoors the Peace III funded catering equipment provided warm refreshments for the visitors. The soup, stew, tray bakes and scones were all home made.
