Another successful Car Boot Sale has come and gone. This year’s weather and
setting couldn’t have been better. Stretching from the Traidhos Cooking
Academy to the end of the football field under the canopy of Prem’s hallmark
rain trees and background Christmas music, the well-attended event hosted a
wonderful variety of goods for our visitors to enjoy a morning of shopping,
eating and bargain hunting.
Not only did this year’s Car Boot Sale have tasty food, second-hand goods
and handicraft vendors, but also new highlights including a visit by Santa,
and the games hosted by the Prem Charities, created a fun and festive
atmosphere. I have to say my favourite booth was the Community mural-making
effort facilitated by Chiang Mai resident artist Christopher Robinson. What
a great work he created on a large 4 metre by 2 metre canvas depicting Thai
temples and temple dogs. Everyone at the magical morning was invited to add
his or her personal touch to the masterpiece. The completed mural will hang
at the Prem Tinsulanonda International School.
Prem’s student-led programmes - Hand to Paw Temple Dog Outreach, Beans for
Dreams and Village School Support Fund (VSSF) - are the three recipients
from this year’s charity event and we truly appreciate everyone who
participated and came out to support us!
