Kinver Country Fayre (KCF) is organised by a small team of dedicated enthusiasts who love nothing more than to support their local community, offering financial help to charities and organisations wherever possible.
The annual event generates funds that enable grants to be awarded to worthy causes within the local community.
In fact, most years KCF helps with funding for around 40 projects. It operates as a not for profit, charitable organisation, thus ensuring that grant applicants gain maximum benefit.
The KCF organising team can be seen below.
