A large team of adult volunteers worked hard to make the event a success. It would not have been possible without a lot of hard work and dedication. The leaders were also supported by a brilliant kitchen crew and tech team.

 

 

A great big “Thank you!” to all who helped in any way in the planning, preparation, donating, making, cutting-out, leading and catering for this popular annual event.

We hope to see you all again next year!
