GIFTED CRAFTERS PUT ON A MINI BAZAAR

"The NHCS “Crafty Workers” put on a “Mini Bazaar” at Serenity Seniors Home,on Oct 27th,2016. This event was enjoyed by many of the residents. It gave them the opportunity to do some Christmas Shopping, without too much effort.

This also helped us in our fundraising efforts for local charities.

Thank you to everyone who participated and made it a success.
