Heathfield held its annual fundraising event, St Nicholas’s Stalls, on 23rd November 2013 in aid of the House charities; S.O.S Children’s Village International, Flip’s Fund, Richard Burns Foundation and Make a Wish Foundation UK. At 11am in true Heathfield tradition girls, parents, governors, staff and old girls gathered for the grand opening at the entrance to the St Mary’s Theatre to see the youngest girl in the School, Georgia (Form I), and Mrs Heywood cut the official ribbon. Once inside, the St Mary’s Theatre was packed full of external stall holders offering an array of goods, perfect for Christmas presents, including candles, soaps, jewellery and clothing. The Sports Hall was a hive of activity as each House traded goods on its House stall. The girls were proactively selling raffle tickets and promoting their games which included Guess the Name of the Brussels Sprout, Grab a Grand and Guess the Name of the Baby. There was face painting, Santa’s grotto and a tuck shop all ran by the girls in the name of charity. Thanks are given to everyone who made this year’s St Nicholas’s Stalls such a huge success. Money from the event is still coming in but last year’s total has already been exceeded.
