  • Supporting the NSPCC


    We have just enjoyed a 2-day Xmas market at Castle Howard. You know you are at a Castle Howard fair, when you see a stall selling cashmere (!) bobble hats with real fur (!) bobbles for £40 (!), and a customer looks at one of our wooden trains and asks "Is that £25 for the engine - how much are the carriages?"... Anyway, most importantly, wrapped up 4u managed to raise £210 for the NSPCC, so we are well pleased with our efforts! A big thank you to all our Castle Howard customers! Incidentally, I didn't buy a bobble hat.
