Environmental Fair

Sutton for Peace and Justice and Child Aid Lanka had another enjoyable and successful day at the Environmental Fair in Carshalton on Bank Holiday Monday, 29 August 2011.

We had a large ‘stall’, with a ‘reading room’ with table and chairs and a range of materials about the issues S4P&J has been involved in, and we served tea and coffee and cakes. We raised funds for Child Aid Lanka’s charitable work in Sri Lanka.

Thank you to all the people who visited us and to those who helped on the stall.
