After months of hardwork & planning our B2B Bump to Baby Fair finally took place on Saturday! I was up bright and early and donned my personalised Slummy Mummy t-shirt.
With over 35 stalls, several demo's, a cafe and the raffle of all raffles the Slummies were kept very busy. The B2B was a huge success we saw lots of pregnant ladies, partners, new parents and grandparents, and families passing through. The stalls included the Slummy Mummies favourite's Blissful Bambino, Acosy Bumper, Smart Creative, Co-operative childcare, Witney Baby Ballet to name but a few. There was lots of advice on offer from our stall holders, and loads of amazing products on sale. The cafe was stocked with our yummy home made cakes, including Mummy N's amazing nutella cakes.....mmmmmmm m m. We were also given pizza by Domino's, and all kinds of serving things from McDonalds. Then there was our raffle, each stall holder had donated something, as well as several other companies, over 50 prizes, with a value totalling more than £1,000! Wow! Some of the prizes were really fab, even our local Chinese takeaway The Dragon's Pearl supported us with a prize of specially designed menu. Everyone was happy with their prizes! Witney TV even turned up to film us http://www.witneytv.co.uk/videos/slummy-mummies-air-ambulance-fundraiser
The day was a great success, we smashed our target and so far have raised over £1051 all for the Childrens Air Ambulance http://www.theairambulanceservice.org.uk/about-us/our-services/the-childrens-air-ambulance
I had a wonderful day and was kept super busy as were the other Slummies, but we did find time to group together for a couple of pictures- I love this picture of nearly all the Slummy Mummies together!
I can't believe how generous local companies were in supporting us, the full list of thank yous will follow soon!!& the answer to the questions on everyone's lips.... will there be another.....quite possibly yes.... watch this space.
Finally, whilst the B2B fair involved all the Slummy Mummies, there was one particular Slummy who worked tirelessly on the event and did most of the organising, Mummy L you are a star, and from now on will be known as Super Slummy, a nickname which is well and truly earnt. We love you to bits are amazed by your organisation skills.
