Peace III funding for Fahan
Fahan Presbyterian Church were delighted to have participated in a Peace III funded project. Our link person Seana Hume offered good advice and guided us along every step of the programme.
The project helped many of our organisations and improved our ability to be involved in the local community.
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.
The Fayre was very well supported by the public who bought cakes and crafts before being served tea by the men and ladies of the Church.
Stalls included overseas Tradecraft products that helped to support other groups.
The buns, all homemade, are being served to stall holders from a local hospital selling crafts made by patients.
Packed main hall with hardly room to move. The catering equipment is essential to help feed the visitors on a cold winter Saturday.
Stew, soup, tea, burgers all being heated on the new cooker supplied as part of the Peace III funding at the Fahan Presbyterian Church Craft Fayre. Hundreds relied on the cooker during the day.
The new water boilers never cooled all day as pot after pot of tea was made on the Peace III funded equipment.

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.
