Festive Fun and Gift Buying Sorted!

Here's your chance to get into the spirit of the season and show your support for The Friends of LEH Christmas Bazaar, which in true 2020 style, has gone virtual this year.

There’s fun for all the family, with some light-hearted Christmassy competitions, amazing prizes to be won with a bumper raffle and a chance to support local independent businesses in Hampton and the surrounding area, with virtual stalls selling a range of beautiful handmade Christmas gifts and bespoke services.

To visit the Virtual Bazaar and take part in the competitions, please click here.

The virtual event will close on Monday 7th December, after which all entries will be judged and the raffle will be drawn on Tuesday 8th December by Mrs Hanbury. 

The Friends are delighted with the wonderful raffle prizes that have been donated by generous parents and local businesses.  They include an iPad Air 64GB, a £500 Virgin Experience voucher, a luxury Fortnum and Mason Christmas hamper and afternoon tea for two at the Wolseley. The price is £1 per ticket, and there’s no maximum limit on the number of tickets you can purchase.

If you’re feeling inspired by the recent series of The Great British Bake-Off, there’s a chance to show off your skills by sending in a picture of your baked masterpiece and a description of what's in it to be in with a chance of being named Baker of the Year. £2 per entry.

Other fun activities include a Christmas Art Competition and a test of true skill, with a Guess How Many Presents in the stocking or sack contest. If you’ve got a furry friend, why not send us a photo of them in a festive mood to hopefully win a prize as the best Santa’s Little Helper. And there’s also a Santa baby competition featuring photos of your favourite Junior teachers as babies – but which ones?

There’s also an impressive array of Virtual Christmas Market Stalls, many of whom are regulars at the LEH Bazaar, so why not stretch out on the sofa, with a cup of coffee and browse to buy the perfect gift while you support local businesses. One of them is the colourful clothing accessories company Pri Pri, which is run by Priya Velusami, who is a Class of 1997 alumna and one of this year's Emerging Talent Award winners.  Her collection of up-cycled saris includes stylish silk face masks.

Whether it’s colourful and comfy socks for your Granny, a handmade notebook for your friend, a personalised necklace for your daughter, the finest leather gloves for your Mum or your own named towel to stop your’s being nicked from the bathroom, there’s a wonderful array of imaginative and unique gifts.

Local businesses who are represented include artist Lisa Tolley, 360 Travel Agent, Belle & Mack accessories, Harry Rocks jewellery, Tropic Skincare, The Good Knife Italian deli, opulent outerwear from South West Ten and quirky mugs from Cole of London.
