We organised Clay Country Plant Fayre this year, for the first time. It was held in the the Clay Country area of |St Austell in Cornwall on Sunday 12th May. As a small nursery grower in the heart of the clay country, we decide to bring together many local growers and makers of garden items we knew. The Plant fayre was a big success with a big foot fall. We run the plant fayre to raise much needed funds for Prickles and Paws Hedgehog Rescue Centre in nearby Newquay, to help our garden friends “The hedgehogs” We raised our profile via a big organic social media campaign, radio interviews with St Austell based Chaos Radio and BBC Radio Cornwall. As well as 70 posters locally and banners made to promote the plant fayre.

Following the success of our plant fayre which was held on May 12th 2024, We have found there is a need to increase the volume of stall holders which we have on a waiting list to join us in 2025 along with all 2024 stallholders have decided to attend in 2025. This will mean we need to move to a much bigger venue in the clay country area of St Austell. We have been in contact with a bigger venue and it is looking like we have found our new home for Clay Country Plant Fayre. We are also very proud to offer local garden related community groups free pitches , to give them the chance to promote our local community.

We are asking for a sponsor to help us cover the cost of venue hire , event insurance, promotion material and banners. What we can ensure to the sponsor would be to promote the sponsor. Sponsors information and logo on all banners, posters and social media. By receiving a sponsor partner we can ensure all funds raised via our stallholders pitch fees, raffle , refreshments and Prickles and Paws stall goes direct to Prickles and Paws. The amount of sponsorship would be less than £500 .
