Christmas Tree Festival
Kendal Parish Church kindly hosted its 6th Christmas Tree Festival, where 40 local charities and organisations were allocated a handsome tree to decorate in their own style. The church looked beautiful and held a series of concerts, which encouraged people to come inside and donate.
The theme was ‘fairy tales’. Since not many feature horses and ponies, we stretched a point and chose ‘Black Beauty’ for our tree. The children were given wooden horses to decorate and, unsurprisingly, displayed an extremely liberal interpretation of ‘Black’. There were lots of sparkles and even a unicorn with feathered wings courtesy of James.
The Festival raised £4,500 overall, and our tree raised £90.47 for RDA Westmorland Group.
