A big thank you to everyone that came along to our first Father’s Day Secret Shop on the 9th June.
We hope that all the dads and grandads enjoyed opening their gifts that were so carefully chosen by the children last Sunday (and that we eased the pain of sourcing a present for some of you)!
This was a new event for us, which we decided to run after it was so widely supported during the recent Friends survey. Whilst the children were in the shop choosing a gift and decorating their gift bags, grown-ups enjoyed a scone or brownie with a drink.
We had a good turnout and sold around 65 gifts. Along with the monies made from refreshments and ice lollies, we made £91.53 profit.
This isn’t a huge sum, particularly for the amount of effort and time involved, so we have agreed to revisit this next year and decide whether it is worthwhile running it again. If you have a strong feeling, either way, please let us know.
On the plus side, we do have a number of gifts left over that will be sold in the Christmas Secret Shop.
Thanks again for supporting us, and a special thanks goes out to those that helped set up and run the event, we really couldn’t do it without you.
