dutch-christmas-marketOn the 7th December the board members of the  “Dutch Foundation for Children Homes in Cape Town” attended the Christmas market in the village of Rolde, The Netherlands. They sell all kinds of items for birds, such as bird cakes, and a selection of other items for the garden and home.

Everything on sale was homemade by the members of the Foundation, but also by an aunt of one of the members. Aunt Fokje is a very creative lady and makes beautiful items for the market These items all sold well! It was the fourth year at the Foundation participated in this Christmas market. As the Foundation’s profits are for a good cause, they do not have to pay a fee to the organisers of the market, which is great!
