Who we support - where the money goes.

Every year we use the fair profits to support a number of charities in the community along with the four local schools associated with the fair.  This year we received applications from eleven very worthy causes and the Committee members have the difficult job of choosing which three charities to help. After a vote, we decided which charities the St Margaret's Fair 2015 will support.
If you are involved in a local charity and would like your charity to be considered please email us at charities@stmargaretsfair.org

The 4 local schools are Orleans Primary, St Marys, St Stephens and Orleans Park, they organise and run activities for the Fair.

In addition, the Fair gives an annual donation to Radio West Middlesex.

The Annual Christmas Dinner for local senior citizens at the Turks Head is fully financed by the Fair.
