The Rampton Fairies and the children of Rampton would like to thank Ian Darler of Cambridge Charity Fundraisers for his donation of 75 children’s activity sets.
These have been distributed around the village and we hope they will provide some entertainment during this difficult time.
The Rampton Fairies are a small Committee of village ladies originally formed to raise money for Christmas lights, who now fund raise around the year to grant ‘wishes’ for the village residents. The money raised from events such as our “Pop Up” Breakfast café and Bingo nights have not only enabled us to light up the village green at Xmas, but also to provide a fortnightly minibus supermarket trip for those without transport, contribute to start-up costs for Rampton Friday Club (the village youth group) and supply, soon to be installed additional facilities at the village hall. Events to foster a community spirit are held for all ages, especially at Christmas, when the Fairies come into their own
The ‘Fairies’ were instrumental in founding the Rampton CareRing to provide village support during the Coronavirus outbreak. The Rampton CareRing, which saw a coming together of the villages 77 Committee and the Village Hall Management team now has a core of 41 volunteers who are able to provide support where it is most needed with tasks such as shopping and prescription collecting. We have also set-up a village milk and newspaper delivery service which we hope we may continue when the crisis has passed.
Unfortunately the Easter egg hunt organised by the 77 Committee for the village had to be postponed, but in true Rampton style the Easter bunny still managed to deliver.
Looking for the Silver lining in these strange times, we as a village are incredibly proud of how everyone, from young to old have pulled together to support one another. Strengthening what already was an amazing community spirit.
I would like to congratulate all the ladies and individuals who have worked so hard and contributed towards helping the families isolated and in need of assistance during these very challenging times the fairies have been simply outstanding in working as a group to help so many people within the village of Rampton.
We are also pleased to have been able to offer the children in the village a small gift and would like to thank the children who have made cards and written letters to CCFR thanking us for the gift.
