The Franciscan Missionary Sisters of Littlehampton (FMSL) recently held a Christmas Bazaar and Nativity Exhibition. People came from near and far and raised a fantastic amount £2526.44, including donations, for their Missions at home and abroad. The day was more than a fund raising event. The wonderful atmosphere created by everyone made it a true Franciscan day and a real social occasion.
All the stalls and the Nativity exhibition proved to be very popular with the visitors. First prize in the raffle, a meal for four at the Oystercatcher, complete with a chauffeur driven limousine to and from the restaurant was donated by FA Holland Funeral Directors.
The Children of St Catherine’s RC primary school contributed an outstanding Nativity display (see below) to the exhibition and received many complimentary comments from the public. It was a truly ecumenical and community occasion with many visitors travelling from out of the area to attend. The Sisters are delighted with the money raised and wish to thank everyone involved in making the event such a success.
