On 28th November 2015, Redbourn Junior School held their annual Christmas Bazaar to raise funds for the school. This bustling event attracted over 300 parents and pupils. Many families also supported the event by making and baking festive treats.
We supported their raffle by supplying a Hotel Chocolat festive family hamper and an Amazon gift card worth £100. Our prize was greatly received by the lucky winner! We also offered ‘Free Site Survey’ vouchers to 50 lucky people and distributed brochures.

National Grandparents Day is quite a new event to the UK. It originated in America as a secular holiday since 1978 and officially recognized in a number of countries on various days of the year.
The celebration was introduced to the UK in 1990 by the charity Age Concern. It has been celebrated on the first Sunday in October since 2008, although it is not widely advertised and has not been as commercially successful as Mother’s and Father’s Day. Businesses specialising in gifts and greeting cards have started merging the respective Grandparents Days with Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to try to boost sales.
According to the National Grandparents Day website, the aim of National Grandparents Day is to honour grandparents; give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children’s children and to help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer.
